Inspiration: Shadow dancing





It's fascinating the effects that can be achieved with photography. They inspire me in themselves. I remember reading as part of my art history studies the debate in photography's early days about whether it could be considered art... I guess it's always been a startling medium, but how could one ever doubt its status on viewing these whimsical moving images by Greek photographer Vangelis Paterakis. It's been described as 'art of the senses' and that definitely resonates with me :) See more of Paterakis' works here.

This is art with a human-sized, capitalized, sans serif, bold 'A'. Full stop.

It's funny how some people still debate whether or not photography is art.
