This project is presented by the Museum “Moscow House of Photography”

Lovygin was sitting at home and making thirty masks of his idol and absolute authority Takeshi Kitano.

Lovygin came to his school and depicted the 11th «A» class sitting in these masks at an astronomy lesson. This is how the first work of this series appeared.

Then came the turn of Saddam Hussein, Nelson Mandela, Frida Calo, Yuri Gagarin, Ronald Macdonald, Marilyn Monroe, Dalai-Lama XIVth, etc.

The masks were put on by kids from kindergartens, actors on tour, friends and acquaintances of Lovigin. All of them were happy and glad to do it, even though at first they were baffled and puzzled. But this is the Path.

Lovygin came home and continued to make masks of Woody Allen, Boris Grebenshikov and Maksim Gorky....
