An Absurdist Exploration Of Beauty By Karmen Ayvazyan

For her conceptual series ‘Hair’, young photographer Karmen Ayvazyan created surreal images combining disembodied ponytails with everyday objects in a minimal setting.

Ayvazyan graduated with a Master’s degree of Photography from the School of Arts in Ghent and is currently living and working in Antwerp. In an exclusive statement about the series, the photographer says: “The series ‘Hair’ shows beauty in a disturbing and mysterious way. It plays with the contrast between elegance and the off-putting.”
