2D or not 2D: Optical Illusions

2D or not 2D by Alexander Khokhlov and Valeriya Kutsan

Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan have teamed up to create an amazing series of portraits that transforms the faces of models into 2-dimensional paintings. The series is cleverly called “2D or Not 2D” and is designed to make the faces look like 2D images when viewed in real life. Using various techniques, like pixelation, collage, cartoon outlines, and colorful shading, the only tell tale sign left that these pictures are even photographs are the models’ eyes peering from the painting. How beautiful?
