15 Ways of Seeing: Shadows

By Phoebe Barrett - 2 min read

Inspired by John Berger's 1972 book 'Ways of Seeing,' our '15 Ways of Seeing' series is an invitation to see the world differently. Each week, we highlight one theme with 15 photos. This week we showcase the beauty of shadows.

“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow.”

— Sylvia Plath
