Berlin-based creative director and photographer Lars Brandt Stisen's recent series 'Shopaholic' is a provocative and humorous play on consumerist themes.

It follows a scantily clad woman as she seeks to sate her shopping appetite in an abandoned mall. Where the series gets really quirky is when the viewer encounters her next to some muscle man wearing only a giant bull mask and underwear. Across his chest is written, "For Sale," while the woman holds a cardboard sign that reads, "Shopaholic." His hands are also bound by thick rope, which the woman holds like a leash.

The impeccable hair and makeup styling was done by Rikke Malling Madsen. The man and women were played by models Soren Epo and Rikke Kroer Johansen, respectively.
