Sleepwalker by Rebecca Finch is a stunning set of photographs that captures simplistically beautiful settings in a dreamlike manner. This self-portrait series contains shots taken at various times of day where the lighting, or lack thereof, creates the perfect eerie ambiance.

Finch, who actually goes by Bex, is a young emerging photographer with incredible promise. Specializing in portrait work, her self-portraits are a rare, thematic introspective art form. There is a certain sadness in these photos and in the rest of her work, which features collections with titles like "A Portrait of Alzheimer's," but in this sadness, her lens finds beauty and light.

Implications - One of the primary elements consumers look for in photography and most other art forms is the portrayal of raw emotion. Expressing emotion is difficult for most people, and art is an outlet through which many look to find these feelings.
