I’m Not There- Shadow Photography


As much as we like to tell ourselves that people don’t change, it’s simply not true. We are constantly learning and growing, hopefully for the better. The person we were yesterday may be completely different from the person we are today depending on what types of experiences are shaping our lives and how we choose to handle them. Artist Pol Úbeda Hervàs explores this constant transition of the self through his photography. By capturing himself and his shadow, then removing himself from the image, leaving only his shoes, he shows that there is still a man somewhere behind the shadow.
