Pastel Dreams: Photography by Karen Khachaturov

mirror image, portrait

A computer programming graduate turned photographer in 2014—Armenian artist Karen Khachaturov likes to snapshoot “lost people,” as he bluntly describes them, i.e. “without a clue that they are surrounded with a colourful life.” Color is a vital part of his visual work; using meticulously soft colors and props-and-people placed perfectly in the frames. Surrealism and fashion fuse well in his conceptual shots of series “Eargasm,” “Narcissism,” and “Post Soviet Kids” (view these still-lifes in video on Facebook). In addition to displaying his work online, he has also exhibited in art shows in Europe, Asia, and America.
