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.

Lamb’s 2600-pound animals, made all the more massive in relation to herself, seem to communicate with the nude in a secret female language flesh, curves, and milk. No longer something to be consumed, the cow takes on a tender, vulnerable humanity in this nighttime barnyard setting.
