How they form. 

The photographer, has a specific interest in two separate subjects. First to raw emotion, which is displayed though the intimate process of a portrait. And second to shadows; how they react and form to the objects surrounding them. Just like a shadow, a person can convey their emotion by reflecting how they feel and casting it on another area. A person's actions may have a specific intent, but we often don’t think about how these actions may indirectly affect those around them.
