Provocative Series Draws Parallels Between Cattle and the Nude Female Figure (NSFW)

For her dramatic series Beefcakes, photographer Allyson Anne Lamb shoots her own naked body in relation to cattle. Through the use of a flash and colored gels, she paints a mysteriously sensual portrait of woman and cow. Under her lens, the body—both human and bovine— becomes fragmented and divided into mirrored parts: breast, buttocks, udder, flank. In dizzying neon, both woman and beef cattle are released from the lusts and hungers of mankind, appearing like electric phantoms that transcend greedy corporeal appetites.

Sweet Family-Style Portraits of Farm Animals

With his touching series The Farm Family, Brooklyn-based photographer Rob MacInnis shoots barn animals in the style of fashion magazine spreads. Freeing the soulful creatures from the context of the lowly barnyard and challenging rituals of human consumption, he wittily and heartbreakingly captures sheep, cows, and goats in Annie Leibovitz-inspired portraits and panoramas. Staged between bales of hay and a snowy doorway resembling a dreamy film screen, the humble beasts find themselves suddenly under floodlights, before a camera that catches their sweet dignity.

Cats rule the Internet, this much is clear, but it is exceedingly rare to see serious depictions of the fine beasts. Beautifully counteracting this trend, yet still letting us look at cats, is Green Bay, Wisconsin-based photographer Jason Houge. Houge has been Instagramming the 20+ colony of feral cats that he and his girlfriend have been feeding and caring for since they moved into their rural home, with the help of local organization Cats Anonymous. Generally cats would come and go, but in 2012, a family of cats stayed for longer than one season. This was the start of Houge’s cat family, which has since grown to include more than twenty cats.

Photo Du Jour: This Bird Must Be Italian

rumi_baumann-BIRD

Relaxing one afternoon with his girlfriend and a few slices of pizza, Berlin-based photographer Rumi Baumann spotted some friendly birds swirling overhead. In a city where bats, foxes, and various birds wander freely, the artist is always hoping to run into critters to photograph. As he offered a pill-sized nugget of pizza to this little fellow with his left hand, he captured the scene with his camera in the right. Above the blur of the urban street below, the bird is seemingly frozen by Baumann’s quick shutter and razor-sharp focus, caught at the moment of anticipation right before his delicate beak meets the artist’s outstretched fingers.
