"Using a visual narrative to seduce her audience with each photographic feast, Sinclair’s art is dark and seductive, baroque and symbolic. Her multilayered photographs subtly present contemporary notions of fashion and beauty through innovative digital media, whilst restoring antique notions of classicism, elegance and luxury." (

I really like Alexia Sinclair's work! It may be 'over' edited using Photoshop and not look 'realistic' but I think her work is very impressive because there is a lot of thought gone into the manipulation and editing, as well as the set up. I love the strong colours and contrasts she uses in her works.
