“Visually I am inspired by culture of fashion and surrealists. I often shock people with my work... I try to combine reality with artificiality.”

Dou is the work of young Russian photographer (28 years old) Oleg Duryagin. He works mostly on the human figure, and, in particular, the human face. This is the object of meticulous investigation and transformation for Duryagin, since his aim is to question post-human identity. All that is flesh goes through a kind of digital metamorphosis; it is erased, smoothed, and rendered to extreme precision. The finished portraits look very sculptural, non-human, surreal, and in many ways, you can see a transparency of the porcelain skin underlining the fragility of every portrait.

Surrealist trip...
