Alexander Khokhlov is a photographer based in Moscow, Russia. He's a self-taught photographer that started his career in 2008 as an event and reportage photographer. Most of all he likes to recreate ideas of make-up transformations. He is well-known for his illusionary artworks such as "Weird Beauty" or "2D or not 2D series". Besides art, his great passion is dog photography! In a big project called "The Dog Show", his wife Veronica Ershova and him tried to show both the beauty of the breed and personality of a dog in order to explore the wonderful world of our four-legged friends.
They started the project in 2017 and since then dozens of dogs have taken part in it. Each of them is unique, and that is what they try to show in their photos. Alexander and Veronica are very proud that the series was awarded by the famous international competitions: PDN Faces 2017 (Animal Portraits, Winner), Moscow International Foto Awards
2018 (Photographers of the Year, Nature category), Prix De La Photographie Paris 2017 (Silver, Nature/Domestic Animals), Tokyo International Foto Awards 2018 (Bronze, Nature/Pets).
Alexander worked with brands like Four Seasons, Hilton Bankside, SVA Zürich, and Solid Gold Pet.
He was interviewed and featured in CNN, Town & Country, PDN Magazine, Scientific American MIND, Professional Photographer, Talk Magazine, Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, Wired, Life magazine, Phlearn.com and others.
