Brow Balding

Oleg Duryagin Removes Eyebrows for 'Naked Faces' Photography

— May 6, 2009 — Tech
The “Naked Faces” photo series by Oleg Duryagin explores the face as a reaction to its environment. The artist offers this as a protest to show the person they need to remain true to who they are, and not be concerned with the face they project to the world.

At first Duryagin's work seems to represent people that lack individuality, but upon a second look at this photography of people without eyebrows, they have incredible unique looks.

Implications - Oleg Duryagin's philosophy on his artwork is intriguing. "I have always been trying to make observers to be not indifferent to my pictures, but it does not mean that emotions should only be positive," he says. "They can express both alarm, and fear, and tearing away."

Duryagin's work shocks, surprises, and allures. Something that every artist can only hope to achieve.
