the russian

I find these photographs from Russian artist Oleg Dou to be intriguingly unnerving. From the paleness of his subjects to the way in which they stare blankly at the viewer, it feels as if the children photographed know everything about you. In their simplicity do these images speak volumes.

Also, these works are printed via the diasec method, an innovative way in which an artist prints pieces directly on to a specially coated metal surface (typically aluminum), allowing for the images to be infused in to the plate and ensuring a lasting archival quality.
