Allyn describes her style as “dead pan, Mona Lisa inspired. Strange but also beautiful.” Each image has a strong composition, lovely light, and some bizarre element that makes my head tilt. Allyn takes common objects like pennies or eggs out of context to create each strangely beautiful portrait. —National Geographic
“I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force–a wild pain and decay–also accompanies everything.” “Black has depth.. you can go into it.. And you start seeing what you’re afraid of. You start seeing what you love, and it becomes like a dream.
