The Absence of Light – Shadow Photography by Alexey Bednij

I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

“There is no such thing as darkness, only the absence of light.” – Albert Einstein. Alexey Bednij is a Russian photographer who gives us a closer look at this absence of light. His series on shadows may look like the product of infinite patience, but a look a little longer and you’ll realize that shadows are cast in only one direction. Digital manipulation notwithstanding, the contrast between the black and white tones in Alexey’s work reminds the viewer of M.C. Escher drawings.
