Twinkling Galaxies Fill the Silhouettes of the Female Form

New Jersey-based photographer Taylor Allen overlays the twinkling visuals of galaxies over the female form in his series titled Astronomy. The photographer combines his passion for astronomy, organic portraits, and provoking vignettes into each image within this ongoing personal project. The double exposure images draw a connection between the vast universe and the organic human body in an eye-catching way, sprawling out the star-speckled skies and a myriad of celestial bodies to illuminate the dark deep space.

Allen’s collection currently features four female silhouettes as the main canvases for his astronomical paintings. Each female figure embodies the dynamic beauty of its coupled space photo. There’s an explosive quality that translates through each image. Oftentimes, we see the female form highlighted as the epitome of beauty, but Allen transfers that attention to the colorful nature of galactic formations.
