This Ben Hassett for Vogue Russia editorial explores the collage medium to create dynamic beauty imagery.

Reconstructing conventions of symmetry, the seemingly disembodied visages that compose this piece push boundaries in terms of perception of cosmetic composition. The surreal inspiration of this piece is evident in the chaos of the rearranged facial components. As beauty editorials usually depict models sporting various cosmetic looks, the modern art take of this feature in Vogue Russia boasts and avant-garde allure.

Model Codie Young provides the perfect canvas for this spread with her striking features made-up in bold and theatrical maquillage. This tumultuous take on the visage challenges viewers to examine modern notions of beauty. This piece by Ben Hassett is exemplary in its utilization of the collage medium to create a fascinating take on fall beauty.
