A young Russian photographer by the name of Oleg Dou has used his unique vision to take the art world by storm. His work, distorted and sometimes haunting portraits, pays homage to surrealism.

“Creation brings me enormous pleasure. I am stubborn, ambitious and optimistic by nature; I like being different — and my work, I hope, reflects these features of my character.” Dou says in a public statement about his work.

These digitally mutated works of art offer indiscriminate images of people – all shapes, sizes, and colors, yet some are almost unrecognizable as human. Though no two images are the same, the eyes are forever poignant– clear and mesmerizing. To see more of Dou’s work, click here.
