Weird Beauty is a series by Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov, in collaboration with make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan, where the faces of female models are painted in unique and visually powerful black and white designs. For the project, Khokhlov says “…we decided to deny any color in our series except black and white to make more accent on forms and volume.” You can see the whole Weird Beauty series at Behance.
The experiment should prove that usual simple forms, familiar things or characters can be a main part of wonderful beauty looks. Model faces in this project are not just canvases for the face-arts – they play their own role in each photo with different parts.
