Russian photographer and artist Alexey Bednij creates images that make one look twice. Manipulating the shadows of subjects in black and white his works create a serene yet slightly confusing image which draws the viewer in to explore the photograph and question its reality.
Chiefly photographing images of animals and people, Bednij takes shots from a bird’s eye view and up close. The result is a stimulating collage of shadows that interact in a playful way while creating beautiful patterns in their positive and negative spaces.
