You'll definitely do a double take when you first set your sights on this incredible collection of photographs. 2D or not 2D is the second series made by photographer Alexander Khokhlov (opens in new tab) and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan (opens in new tab) and Veronica Ershova who led the process of retouching and post-production.
The pair were inspired by two-dimensional posters, with the key-idea 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.
We couldn't quite believe some of the creations, with the colours, shapes and strokes carefully and precisely positioned to reveal some truly stunning photography.
