DOU. OLEG DURYAGIN "NAKED FACES" WOW!!!!!!!
From the artist:
"I was born in Moscow in 1983. I have always been interested in human individuality and self-expression. I have been creating different designs for many years. And I started photography in 2005 to mix it with design. The “Naked Faces” project is devoted to relationship between human’s inner world with human’s behaviour in society. The society still restricts behaviour and thought of a human being. This project is a kind of a protest that is to show that a person should remain who he is and that people should perceive him in the way he is. The persons presented in my works lack individuality: the eyebrowes and the eyelashes are removed, the skin is smoothed. I have always been trying to make observers to be not indifferent to my pictures but it does not mean that emotions should only be positive - they can express both alarm, and fear, and tearing away. Visially I am inspired by culture of fashion and surrealists. I often shock people. I try to create my personal aesthetics of the works, I try to combine reality with artificiality”
