Allyson Anne Lamb is a New York City-based photographer and School of Visual Arts grad who uses her camera to investigate the sexier side of overconsumption. While some are content to gripe about the objectification of the female body by way of annoying tween pop stars and creepy old photographers, or our gluttonous dependency on gross fast food hamburgers, Lamb took the subject and ran with it, created a stunning yet slightly hilarious photo series.
“The portraits aim to address the actions society has taken to dehumanize the beast and oversexualize the human body to the point where we too have become dehumanized, and detached from our relationships with each other, animals, and our environment,” said Lamb. “In these portraits, they are intimately intertwined, mirroring the other. Shape and color become the composition, instead of the split of the two subjects.”
