Visual Terrain

Matthew Duran

When I was taking pictures of this plant it was not my first impulse to take a shot of just the shadow it produced. Exploring deeper into the space I found the beauty projected onto the wall. With the shades of green to faint orange kissing the edges of the leaf. It is the dual green and orange colors that remind me of old fashion 3D glasses. Along with the texture of the wall that brings the image to life, giving the shadow something to stand on. This shadow to me is powerful and has a story of its own, through the array of different colors displayed to the framing of the shot.
