No one does pretty/ugly quite like Ukrainian lovers Roman Noven and Tania Shcheglova. Their analog photographs are taken strongly yet spontaneously, and every now and then you’ll come across a bum or two, poking out from behind some curtains or peeking out from a skirt jumping on a trampoline. The images are funny, unexpected, haunting and beautiful; all at once, if possible. Shooting under the name Synchrodogs, their quirky and unsettling self-portraits deconstruct their own personalities through the raw candour and nudity while also commenting on the animalistic behaviour and emotions of their viewers themselves.

There hasn’t been a time where natural beauty and awkwardness have been able to shine in the mainstream quite like now, and the Synchrodogs urge this sentiment on, encouraging us to be free from any expectations and fear of being judged by our peers. They tunnel deep into the heart of human nature itself. But their images also have a superficial beauty and nostalgia and allow us to laugh at ourselves, our inelegance, our grossly human bodies and the way in which they are perceived in fashion and the media. And in the end the photographs are just quite lovely to look at, too.
