Hi! We are Alexander Khokhlov and Veronica Ershova, a team of photographers and artists from Moscow. Today we are glad to introduce you the new series of conceptual black and white portraits in which models were used as art objects to create striking optical illusions.

In the project, named Humiforms, we turned to our favourite subject of visual transformations to create unusual portraits, from the layering of familiar objects. In Humiforms, we explore the personality and its inner world, revealing through the images diverse qualities and conditions of humanity. Internal contradictions and harmony, a passion for excitement and excessive conservatism, a thirst for freedom and selective attention — these are some of the themes that emerge in the Humiforms series.

The models were transformed for the series using graphic make-up, supplemented with accessories in most of the images, which were then perfected using retouching techniques. It took from two to six hours to create each image.
