2D or not 2D is a series made by photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. The team was increased with Veronica Ershova who had leaded the process of retouching and post-production. The authors were inspired by two-dimensional posters. The key-idea of the project was to turn the models faces into the 2D images. Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.
