Amazing Shadow Photos Created Using Carefully Arranged Objects

Tim Noble and Sue Webster are a London-based artist duo that creates amazing shadow art installations using carefully arranged objects. They use everything from trash to metal cans shot with BB pellets, arranged to cast shadows of people and skylines on the wall when a light is shined from a certain direction.

You can find more of their artwork over on their website here.

Thanks for sending in the tip, Adam!

    You’re kidding aren’t you? These are very well known and have been around for a long time. I think even a UK retailer used one in an advert.

  • Mauricio Andres Ramirez Lozada

    He’s not presenting them a any kind of novelty… calm down. he’s just making a reference.

    I dont think their work should be refered as “amazing shadow photos” because they are installations, the end result its not a photography

    LOL the girl looks like she’s peeing…

  • Andrew

    they are both peeing, that’s how is it meant to look.

    The UK retailer advert was the design agency ripping Tim & Sue’s ideas off.

    Talking to a guy called Spider Man, what do you think that he is going to laugh at?

    These are very well known and I even saw the Isabella Ford one at the Portrait Gallery. STill doesn’t mean they can’t be shown here to those that do not know.

    Exactly! It’s so old it’s been ripped off. Might as well link to the Bechers next and call it ‘fascinating photography featuring typography off buildings’. I thought Petapixel was fresh stuff. Come on Michael ;-)

    Well, for me this way new, I am actually glad Michael shared this. Just because you guys have seen it many times before doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be shared.

    This needs to be parodied. 

    In a way, it has been, once I think about it.  There was some recent commercial that had someone making shadow puppets and they were much more elaborate than the person could ever realistically do.  But a more direct parody would be pretty awesome.
