A man walks towards The Light, but his shadow hangs back, dragging behind him, dreading the openness and certainties of brightness.

But should the man eschew The Light and decide to walk back in the opposite direction, his shadow will strain and leap on ahead, eager for the concealments, anonymities and ambivalences of darkness.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Very nicely seen, photographed, processed and communicated. This is another that is quintessentially you. The slightly dark feeling, honing in on the subject, keeping it monochrome because it works best that way. …etc.

    My shadow likes to pull away from the light too, but in my world, I scoop it up and hide it away safely in the darkness of my pocket and carry it with me with the comforting thought that it’s close at hand should I need it quickly. 😊


  4. Narration! Love it!

    Wow, deep stuff, my friend, dripping with symbolic meaning. Great, I love it.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
