4. This picture really embodies what shadows are to me. Not just because of the fact that the focal point is just one big shadow, but that the actual subject is obscured. We see nothing of her- a highlight from the light, but she is completely incomprehensible. And that’s what shadows are – they’re unknown. They’re the things that creep in through the night behind the light. They’re unknown, unidentifiable, which is exactly what the subject of this picture is.
