Keith Allen Phillips is a talented American photographer hailing from Pensacola, Florida, who has managed to take on a fetish in a very unique and even disturbing way. Covering his nude models with all sorts of snacks ranging from chocolate syrup to Cheetos and a few marshmallows, Keith Allen Phillips' aptly titled Messy series could easily be interpreted as a comment on food sex.

Yet many of the portraits taking place in Keith Allen Phillips' series is not overtly sexual. This is due in large part to the fact that many of the models end up looking monstrous under the thick layers of powder sugar, chocolate and more. Completely open to interpretation, the images beg for dissection in a way that brings more meaning to them.
