2D or not 2D is the collaborative work of make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan and photographer Alexander Khokhlov.

They were inspired by two-dimensional posters and styles made popular by 20th century artists. The idea behind this visual experiment was to transform the models' faces into well-known, flat, 2D images.

This incredible project combines Valeriya's skillful application of the make-up and Alexander's trained eye to perfectly capture these dualdimentional images. The following video gives us a 360º insight into the creative process.
