'You've probably seen my art on someone else's account', reads the Instagram bio of Sarah Bahbah. And she's right, you probably have.
Her provocative photographic series Sex and Takeout has been shared countless times on social media and has appeared in tabloids all around the world. And there's no wondering why.
In this sensual series, Bahbah turns her lens to the naked body; men and women pose seductively on beds, on chairs, in baths, surrounded by vast amounts of fast food. From the bathing women gorging on sprinkled pink doughnuts to the reclining women munching on cheese-laden pepperoni pizzas, Bahbah's work explores the relationship between literal and sexual hunger.
Bahbah's colourful images, released periodically on her Instagram platform, have earned her more than 260K followers. As a result, she is now widely acknowledged as one of Australia's top digital influencers. Stare if you dare.
