These photographs were initially exhibited by the BBC in 2010, under the theme ‘Shadows and Lines’. This led to further exploration of this initial body of work, and became the springboard for this book.

Several of the photos highlight how SHADOWS create geometric SHAPES, especially in empty SPACES.
