Shadow Photography

I have been getting into photographing shadows lately… I’m not sure why!

I have always enjoyed the shadows that are cast from 3D sculptures , and have always wanted to explore it more in terms of my own sculptural art – it is on the to-do-list!

So here are some shadow images I enjoy…

So, I am not sure how to incorporate this concept into my artwork, but I have been drawn lately toward shadows that I have noticed around the house – perhaps because I have been “looking” for them.  This is a photo I took of a shadow from a sculpture I made many years ago that sits on my computer desk….

And these photographs are what I have seen over the past couple of days on walls and the floor and windows…. SO ENJOY!

  2. We are alike in shadow. Love yours. I’ll have to hunt mine down on my laptop and chase them into the blogosphere. I’m reading a little book – an essay really – right now: In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki. Worthwhile. Ann
