Systematic Creature Book
This book was created whilst I was organising an event based upon the theme of ‘Creatures’. The event included an exhibition room where I displayed this Creature Book. The images created worked to a system whereby I took a 15 minute walk on a sunny day with a friend. We stopped at every shadow we came across on our journey and I photographed the image of my friends shadow merging with the existing shadow on the ground. This system transformed the shadows into creature-like forms. The large-scale sizing of this book adds to the sinister nature of the images, as they appear larger and life-like.
