Shadows (2)

Sometimes working on one post leads to an obvious connection to another, earlier one. Having searched out work by Sam Taylor-Wood for my last post, I noticed this series that has an affinity to the discussion of shadows. Notice that the chair casts no shadow - hence the title. I will leave it to you to find a related series by Taylor-Wood from the preceeding year - "Portrait Suspended" - which is wholly shadowless.

this is lovely - i like the way the images of the girl, the shadow and the chairs have been merged

If you look closely the front leg which is touching the floor happens to be casting a shadow. I believe this might be caused by intentional light reflection on the white wall. Or it could be an effect of multiple light positions i.e. above sides etc etc etc.
