Shadow Play Series — The Dance Between Light and Dark

As the days are slowly getting longer, I have been taking time to reflect, review and refuel. I was reminded of the many shadow images I have taken over the past 4 years when I was fascinated by the shadows that would randomly show up and decided to assemble them as a series.

After bringing them into Photoshop without any manipulation, I experimented with printing them out on matte photo paper and realized they had ethereal qualities similar to Man Ray’s experimental Rayographs which were photograms (photographs created on photo-sensitive paper without a camera) he created during the 1920s.

In my case these were abstract images that showed up during different times of the day on my walls and ceiling that I decided to capture with my iPhone.

When I began doing this, I was taken by how beautiful some of these shadows were and how personally we often shy away from diving deep into our own shadows out of fear, and yet personally over the years the deeper I have gone addressing my own shadow-self, the more I am able to allow for the light to come in.
