Black and White Portraits of Faces Painted Black and White

 

Weird Beauty is a collaboration between photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan (featured previously). On the Behance project page, Khokhlov explains:

The “Weird Beauty” project is made in collaboration with great make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. In these series we decided to deny any color in our series except black and white to make more accent on forms and volume. 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.
