Entitled 'Self(less)', this captivating series of images is the work of photographer Alexandre Dubois. The visionary talent enlists six models for this set of pale and washed-out portraits.

The three men and three women pose in studio while sporting greyed out hair and bleached out eyebrows that have been covered with pale powder. Their beauty is raw, honest and pure as they pose in low-contrast lighting.

This bright setting gives the models a non-human quality, ultimately making them resemble otherworldly beings or the subjects of photo-realistic paintings. Alexandre Dubois' 'Self(less)' image series defies convention and draws inspiration from the unexpected. Embracing unusual forms of beauty, this portrait set blurs gender lines with its raw and ambiguous captures. Stats for Artfully Pale Photography Trending: Older & Warm
