Russian photographer. His imagery is focused on creating and photographing optical illusions that trick the eye to confuse the 2D and the 3D. Khokhlov collaborates with make-up artists that create works of art, and he takes carefully lit photographs that adds to the optical illusions.
The trickery can be seen in the series of very precise portraits. The combination of make-up, lighting and portraiture has produced very strong graphic and transforming photographs.
