This photo captures the mystery of a shadow. How it is always there looming over your shoulder, perhaps judging your next move or telling you where to go. This photograph is a timeless piece that could be taken in any specific era. It makes the viewer stop and think. What is this man’s story? Who is he and where is he headed? It feels classic yet modern with a geometric twist. It makes the viewer beg to know more about this mysterious man. It makes you wonder about yourself, your actions and their chain effect on other people, and of course, your ever present shadow.
