The Beauty Of The Light And Shadow Photography

Photo by Jure Kravanja

In ancient times people believed that shadows were signs of some divine presence around an object. Today, we know the nature of shadow as the optic phenomena, but in our perceptions shadows still remain associated with some mystery. That is why shadows have always been of interest to visual artists – painters and photographers. Many of them choose to illustrate shadows instead of real objects, producing very interesting, conceptual, and artistic works. Today we offer a showcase of shadow photography. People, actually, are often too busy to notice how different and interesting shadow effects can be. Photography is capable of “freezing” the moment and showing us the truth about many things on Earth, including shadows.
