The paint strokes on the Top10 Source Color editorial have a creepy quality that truly sets it apart from modern photography. Each image looks like it was shot in a different setting and then made more modern by the addition of those deliberate brush strokes.

Shot by Ukraine-based photographer Denis Kravec, who was assisted by Olga Petruhina and Sveta Buddaychyk, the Top10 Source Color editorial looks to be sucked dry of color, despite its name. In fact, the illustrations drawn by Masha Reva add almost all of the existing hues, as though she hoped to replace them somehow. Artistic in a vintage and avant-garde sort of way, the entire editorial ends up having a high-fashion aesthetic. Stats for Eerily Painted Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
