OLEG DURYAGIN: photographer & digital artist

ussian image maker Oleg Duryagin is far from a photography purist. His absolutely stunning facial portraits of real people are digitally manipulated to within an inch of their respective to lives to give an eerily lifeless quality to them. He systematically removes the eyebrows and eyelashes from his subjects and smooths and desaturates the skin until it resembles a porcelain zombie like consistency. “Visually 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.” (Oleg Duryagin). Check some samples of his portraits in the gallery below and for more examples just visit: www.douart.ru
