I read, with total disinterest
I read, with total disinterest and a modicum of contempt, in another place, by another so-called photographer, of the importance of demonstrating detail in shadow.
It’s as if said so-called has no imagination. Nor does it want others to confuse the viewer by presenting parts of an image that might not reveal their true nature.
Shadows present so many opportunities for the photographer to express ideas far beyond reality.
Think of all the imagery and fantasy a shadow allows you to set free your feelings and experience the peculiar workings of suggestion.
Fear, evil, mystery, temptation, along with puppetry, Wayang, sinister behaviour, form, distortion, the coming and going of the Sun, shifting clouds.
I even know when a bird flies over my house or someone is at the front door by the shadow cast across the floor.
All this is because we don’t see detail.
Please join me in celebrating The Shadow.
