Artist with an elusive personality born in Moscow in 1983, Oleg Dou tackles the theme of the portrait of a live model, entirely reworked using computer (in 2012, his mastery earned him the title of Adobe Photoshop Ambassador). His work attracts or disturbs: it leaves no one indifferent. His vision and mastery rank him among the photographers who marked the history of contemporary photography.
