Profiles of Light and Shadow




























I dont' know about you, but I love art museums. A couple of friends of mine and I went up to the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe the other day to see the Pinhole Camera Exhibit and the Gustav Bauman and Friends Exhibit (artist cards from Holidays past). On the wall in the upstairs lobby area are a neatly organized grouping of acrylic squares. In the morning hours, you might notice why it really is there than you would from midday on. The sunlight coming through the windows casts unique and intentionally made shadows from these pieces of acrylic. Each one casts a different profile. Pretty cool, huh?

I looked up the name of the artist-Kumi Yamashita and I'm sure one of us has posted her work before as her art uses light and shadow. I suppose we should all be able to remember and rattle her name right off the bat since we are all shadow aficionados!


Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

These are so cool - each one wears an expression not unlike the New Hampshire man in the granite mount. The sun adds a playful shadowy 'face' we can enjoy one at a time or all at once...

The use of colour blocks and shadowy partial profile are so fascinating. Lovely artwork.

Clever as well as artsy.

Just fantastic. I'd love to see how she lights her workshop to create these images

This is absolutely awesome, what an artistic way to see a profile.

I saw the pinhole exhibit about six months ago, but I didn't see these "faces" on the wall. Are they a new addition?

Those are so cool. The shadows are more prominent that what they are reflecting from.
