Russians Make Pretty Freaks

Though they are markedly less funny.

Druids! Goths! Cosplay fans! Sex and tattoo crazies! Freaks and geeks of all sorts are an inexhaustible source of fun, right?

Photographer Olya Ivanova doesn't seem to think so. Instead, she photographs the freaks of Russia because they "live in some kind of parallel reality, created by its own rituals and rules of behaviour, where the boundary between good and evil, joy and sadness, innocence and perversity, as well as reality and fiction, becomes very vague."


Which I guess is easy to say when the freaks in your country are so much hotter than they are anywhere else.
