The shadows are as common as fascinating and sometimes disturbing. They are the protagonists of movies and stories, and often tell a different story than reality, or even seem to have a life of their own. Our reflection is not always the mirror of who we are: it rather tells something hidden, latent or imaginary. Can a horse’s shadow look like a kangaroo’s? With the right perspective and the right accessories, absolutely. Can a flower recall a dancing fairy? You can see proof of this in the photo below. These 15 people necessarily had to immortalize what they saw, and in front of which they felt confusion and – at the same time – stupor.
