It was almost a year ago that we posted about an incredible collaboration between Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov, makeup artist Veronica Ershova, and floral stylist Mikhail Kravchenko. They have teamed up again for a series of striking photos entitled Bloomshapes and Illusions, where they explore photographic portraiture adapted from a variety of influences, such as minimalism and symbolism. They even employ an element of illusion in their work, which makes it that much more special. Particularly notable is their use of flowers, like their remarkable Marge Simpson piece. Here, they employ brilliantly white blooms with great success. The attention to detail and sheer artistry that goes into these photographs is astounding, as exhibited in the video below. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

One of television’s most beloved cartoon moms is the subject of a fantastic photograph by Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov, who teamed up with makeup artist Veronica Ershova and stylist Mikhail Kravchenko to transform model Kate Moukhina into a real-life Marge Simpson. Immortalizing Marge and her signature blue bouffant was no easy feat. Kravchenko even used real chrysanthemums painted blue and special wire frame to bring her hair to towering heights. Another notable pop culture-centric portrait series by team Khokhlov/Ershova is “Angry Beards” based on the Angry Birds phenomenon. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
