Crazy Awesome Black And White Portraits

Crazy Awesome Black And White Portraits

Russian photographer, Alexander Khokhlov, hailing from Moscow, has created a brilliant series of B&W "beauty-eque" portraits. I wish I knew who the MUA was so I could give her/him credit, because they did a friggin INCREDIBLE job on this shoot, whoever it was. I really love everything about these shots and it is the kind of series that pushes me to think outside of the box and find something to do that hasnt been seen before. Great job Alexander (and crew). Enjoy!

Wow that is intense! Love it!

The woman with the half white/half black face reminds me of the Star Trek episode: Let That Be Your Last Battlefield.

Awesome idea and executed with with style and depth...

But that's not all make-up is it... You can barely tell and tbf most of it could actually be real facepaint but a fair bit of it has been done via editing. But I might be wrong and if so, fair efin play to the make-up artist !!!

These are awsome photos. And I hate to be "that" guy, But these reek of illuminati/mind control propaganda. 

How is mickey/mini mouse part of or symbolic to the illuminati ?... I can see maybe where you're coming from with one eye open and the rays of sun on her face. But I'm honestly not getting that vibe...

Put your tinfoil hat on.

I think my favorite would have the be the "two-face" photo. Do you see that the black side of her face ALSO looks like a flat, side-profile view of a girl? Great stuff :)
