One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.

Using photography as a foundation for his portraits, Russian artist Oleg Dou manipulates the skin and bodies of his subjects via modern technology. His ‘Cub’ series depicts spectral children, their intense gazes confronting the viewer, fashioned with surreal trappings and an ethereal innocence. Imbued with an eerie stillness, these portraits were influenced by the macabre Victorian era practice of post-mortem photography, an inspiration that adds a foreboding tension to the strange, dream-like beauty of the work.
