Still Life Part VII Shadows | Stefania Piccioni

In the study of history of photography it’s easy to see how light is fundamental, in fact photographers of every ages have been able to create atmospheres, communicate sensations and show the movement of surfaces through more or less intense contrasts of lights and shadows.

Even in the observation of reality we realize that even most common objects get particular visual aspects thanks to light. My pictures may recall the theory of shadows in descriptive geometry, or something similar realized with a camera, or with a smartphone, in substitution of a Radiograph, with bottles instead of solids. For this we study the theory of shadows, application of descriptive geometry that deals with effects produced by light on an opaque body, giving its scientific explanation (the theory of shadows recalls the theory of oblique projections, given by G. Mone). To make these still lifes I always took pictures from 9.30 to 11 am, and only if there was the sun, which I chose as bright source, that projected shadows on a definite support plan. These pictures are a middle way between  a strict geometrical synthesis and an imaginative compositional study. To strictly white jars and bottles I often pull together a small broken mirror that recalls the sail of a boat and reflects the shadows of bottles or light shapes which I created with wire. The shapes crossed by the lights seem to vibrate and become evanescent. For the choice of objects of my compositions I privileged contemporary and linear ones. The potentiality of ambient light let me accentuate contrasts and make all the drama emerge from shadows. The shadow of the bottle is almost a declaration of intents that overturns conventions of genre: the bottle, which is the usual protagonist, becomes completely decentralized from cuts of light, which decline the real object in support of its projection. All the pictures were both taken with a digital reflex or with a smartphone
