Sharp Silhouettes that Evoke Emotion

Hengki-Lee-Photography -1

Using simple black and white photography, Hengki Lee has found a way to tell a story with his silhouettes. The Indonesian self-taught photographer captures perfectly the outline of the people and animals in his shots without giving them an identity, almost to insist that you relate them to your own life or create a story for them. Using the moon to light many of his shots, the silhouettes are so crisp that they almost look like construction paper cut-outs glued to the photographs.
