If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it would be interesting to see what the beholder makes of the photo series titled Strange Beautiful by Shanna Allyn, a published and award-winning photographer born in Wisconsin and based in Minneapolis. As though in complete opposition of the images found within fabricated fashion magazine, this series explores the idea of beauty in an oddball sort of way.

First of all, each model captured in Strange Beautiful by Shanna Allyn has her face obscured in some manner, whether that's with a big green melon or childishly illustrated cutouts. Although slightly disturbing, the images force audiences to focuses on other aspects other than the perceived beauty of the individual being shot.

Comprised of seven parts, Strange Beautiful by Shanna Allyn is a fantastic photo series.
