Shadows Alive (35)

Backstory: 'I live in a region where the sun dominates the scene very often. Sometimes there is too much brightness and I am longing for the night when the big shadow overwhelms the landscape.

But also during the day when the sun is behind my back, I keep an eye on all these moving shadows which appear here and there and follow me on old stone walls and streets. They seem to tell me stories about another life beyond the daily routine. They tell stories about things happening in another world.

I remember that I was always fascinated by early German expressionistic movies. They played with shadows to create a surreal vision somewhere between reality and human fears. But in my series 'Shadows alive' there is more than fear. There are also dancing bodies and stories of corresponding souls. And sometimes the shadows communicate with the real world and the real things. But what is real?' (Vanessa Vox)
