Dutch artist Anne Smolders has elegantly recreated the seven sins in her photographic series of Modern Sinners. Each photograph focuses on one of the sins, with perfectly coifed models styled in paper and magazines.

The seven sins series is a modern take on lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. Take a look through the gallery and see if you can identify the photo that corresponds to each of the seven sins.

Implications - This Anne Smolders creation is particularly potent at a time like we're living now, an age of political and economic unrest and turmoil. This has led some politicians, members of the public, and celebrities to ratchet up their beauty obsession, avarice, and gluttony -- but thanks to artistic photographs and discussions like this, we are cognizant of this action.
