The Natalie Shau photo series displays a dark imagination that feeds off of the surreal while delivering feminine imagery that could easily inspire fashion photoshoots as well. Often a mixture of gothic, fairy tale and subtle macabre elements, the images envision a world that is rife with black magic and other such mystical influences.

Whether the Natalie Shau photo series brings a dark edge to a doll-like look or simply accentuates the natural wiles of a born femme fatale, people, especially women, will be drawn to them. What makes the photo series particularly arresting are their use of both digital art and photography. Although full of colorful characters, the images are mainly subdued with only hints of vibrancy here and there.
