Meghan Collison stars in the 'Obsess' editorial for Numero China's #44 issue in November 2014. The feature was lensed by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello.

The editorial's title refers to Collison's disturbing hoarding behavior. Human hoarding is a compulsive tendency to accumulate food and other items. It usually, but not necessarily, occurs during (real or imagined) periods of shortage, and can often begin in anticipation of large-scale disaster.

In Collison's case, her hoarding habit seems to be a mixture of survivalist instinct and an inability to part with nostalgic items. The images include Collison on a bed surrounded by ceramic animal sculptures; laying on a wicker chair covered in stuffed animals; ad perched on a bathtub brimming with fruit.
