Striking Black and White Portraits of Art Painted on Faces

Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov has a striking series of portraits of models with various designs painted onto their faces. The faces are either painted completely black or completely white, and then used as a canvas for some kind of artwork (e.g. a Mickey mouse face, a silhouette, a keyhole). Khokhlov calls the series Weird Beauty.

The series is like Chinese photographer Liu Bolin’s “Invisible Man” photographs, except on much smaller and simpler scale.

You can see more of these photos on Khoklov’s 500px page by searching for the tag “weird beauty series”.
