At first glance, the 'Don't Touch My Universe' photo series looks like a typical fashion shoot, but it quickly becomes clear that is not the case at all. When the viewer finally peels his or her eyes off of the model and looks at the images as a whole, scary scenes can be seen through the window just beyond her apartment.

Shot by German photography duo Frank Bayh and Steff Rosenberger-Ochs of Frankundsteff, the Don't Touch My Universe photo series is hilariously thought-provoking. It portrays the beautiful model as completely self-absorbed, unaware of the devastation happening just steps away from where she luxuriously lays. From floods to gas leaks and nuclear bombings, this photo shoot addresses the idea that there are often bigger concerns than looking good.
