Shadows 2016-18

These images were made by projecting shadows on a translucent screen, then photographing the screen. They are composed only with light, occlusions and shadows.

The initial impetus was to recreate the feel, nuance and impossibility of late afternoon\early morning light. As the project continued, additional elements crept in – as they do.

Many thousands of shadows were maimed, distorted, altered and destroyed in this process. C’est la guerre.

Note: These are limited resolution images. Full resolution archival prints will be available soon.
