Sam Taylor-Wood represents physical spaces and elements through highly energetic poses and situations. I am interested in her works that investigate self by removing objects and her body figures. They are a fantastically matched.
These photos use shadows to create dynamic and interesting photo. By using a spotlight and the shadow of a hand this photo series plays with the perspective of the viewer. The subject is seen as small while the shadow cast by the hand is large giving it a certain power over her. This evokes a sense of intimidation and fascination.
