THE SECRET LIFE OF SHADOWS

Are we sure that shadows are only projections of an object? What if they had their own identity? That’s how Vincent Bal imagines  them…

 

The famous Belgian writer, author and director of award-winning films like “The Bloody Olive” (1997), “the cat Minouche” (2001) and “Nono, het Zigzag Kind” (2012), also enjoys the art of illustration and comics, reinterpreting the shadows of common or everyday use objects.
