My name is Leslie Sinclair. As a photographer, I am inspired by the natural world around us. Whether capturing a large expanse or a small vignette, I strive to show nature and life in a new and interesting way. In “TheArtofi- lü-mə-ˈnā-shən”, my newest collection, I bringlighttodarknesstocreateamood, revealascene, orhighlightcolorandtexture. Throughthisexposure, everydayobjectsbecomesomethingmore. Scenesbothfamiliarandunusualareshowninanewlight. Theimagesareoftenmysteriousor unexpected, andsometimesrevealatwinkleofhumor. I use art as a way to tell a story and evoke a sense of wonder. In this collection, I pay homage to the work of still life artists, while adding my unique perspectives. My hope is that you will enjoy the scenes themselves, that they will evoke nostalgic remembrances, and in addition permit the discovery of something new. Since 2008, I have been pursuing my passion for nature and fine art photography. My work has been exhibited at the Rehoboth and Millsboro Art Leagues, and has been recognized by the Ward Museum and The Nature Conservancy. I studied under Photographer Harold Ross and use techniques learned in his workshop to evolve and advance my art.
