Allyn’s collection of portraits showcases a metamorphosis through a story of photographs and explores a spectrum and world of emotion & logic intertwined with love & madness. Someone natural perfumed in something unnatural. A showcase of beauty in a carnival of strange mirrors. “Allyn’s photographs are not the kind we typically see here at National Geographic, but they certainly stopped us in our tracks by daring to be different. We love the quirk and the way these made us furrow our brows. They are truly strange, and truly beautiful.”
