Oleg Dou: CUBS

28 Sep

“A modern interpretation of an old practice, ‘cubs’ by moscow-based photographer Oleg Dou is a series of images that draw from the aesthetic and ambience of child funeral portraits. Utilizing a muted palette with a stark backdrop, the porcelain-like subjects are morphed to display discerning features of various animals, such as a set of slender antlers for ‘fawn’ and perked-up ears in ‘rabbit’. The result is a whimsical collection of portraits that play into the innocent adolescence of the characters while still maintaining an eery sense of death and mortality”.
