This colorful editorial features elaborately and eccentrically embellished welding helmets. Not surprisingly, the photo series by artists Jeleza Rose, Zhanna Syguta-Milova and Andrew Onufriyenko is titled 'Welders.' With its completely random choice of materials used, the costumes resemble something Lady Gaga would think of.
This experimental photography and art project combines film, digital photography, portraiture and fashion. Each welder is reinvented and styled with heavy emphasis on eccentricity. The resulting effect is eye-catching and also humorous. The photo series portrays tradesmen in a funky light. The actual role of a welder is not exactly glamorous, but this photoshoot bedazzles welders with chains, jewels and flowers. If a real welder were to be behind the helmet, the sight would be hilarious and maybe even awkward.
