Shadow Life

The interaction of light and shadow is fascinating. Shadows captured by the lens of Vangelis Paterakis evoke dreams of shadow and light with elongated shapes and softness of lightning. It’s a rare technique.

With his Shadow Light creation, Greek photographer, Vangelis Paterakis captures human bodies in motion under the light. He builds contrast between the background and subject. The figures become expressive and recognizable when the real and the abstract appear side by side. He is almost trying to withdraw the attention from the subject to only project their soul. A cool detached and conceptual aspect of humans.

Does a photo need to tell it all? Minimalism seems to have resolved this.
