Shadow lessons


Long legs


From children's books I learned to think that shadows are part of a secret, other world. From photography I learned that shadows show us the possibility of the impossible. A chair can have four legs of different lengths and still be something you can sit on.

And from art lessons, in school, and from my painting parents, I learned the impossibility of the possible. With a camera I can capture these angles: they exist. I doubt that I could ever draw them and get them right.
