Do you ever wonder if your shadow is playing tricks on you behind your back?
I mean, it could be, right? It's always walking behind you so you never know what's going on back there!
The past couple of weeks I've been tracing Matty and I onto large rolls of black paper.
I then cut them out into fun shadow people,
and taped them onto the walls and sidewalks all around Brooklyn. I then waited for people to walk by and took a picture at the exact moment they matched up with their silly shadow.
This is absolutely lovely! :) You inspire me!
oh your amazing! how fun! clever and brilliant!
this is so sweet! the one with the balloons is great. all the nice things you do inspire me!
you are so creative! great idea!
this is amazing and such a cute idea. you seem to spread happiness wherever you go!
this is amazing! thanks for putting a smile on my face :)
what?? what??? how do you do it? coming up with something more amazing every day. absolutely incredible. love it!
OMG! You inspire me alot! You are really an imaginative and creative person. If only the world has ten more people like you. I bet the world would be a lovely place to live in :D
that's the coolest idea! i just don't understand how these people don't have any expression showing how awesome what they're doing is...
This is too awesome!
That is brilliant!!
Not only does it look great in photos but im sure that random people walking past would have smiled at seeing random shadows on the wall!!
I love that! Its brilliant! :)
Ahhh! I love it. You are far to creative and clever missy!
The. Best. Ever. You make me happy :)
I love the way the lighting on the balloon picture turned out. I think that's the best of the set! Lighting is tricky with shadows. Were these people modeling for you? It seems like it would be difficult to get their feet to match so perfectly unless they were trying.
Katie, please come live in my city! Love this latest project! I mean, really LOVE! :)
Thanks so much everyone!
Citystreams- The people actually aren't modeling! It definitely was really hard to get a picture of them matching up with their shadow. Sometimes it took me and entire day to get one shot where the lines matched up to their feet!!
Oh this is awesome! What fun!
Wow! That is awesome. I bet it took a lot of patience.
This is so incredibly cool! I adore how creative you are!
I am sure Brooklynites got a kick out of that! This is very reminiscent of the Brazilian street artist and photographer Alexandre Orion's project, Metabiotica. You can see his images here...
That is so cool! I love these just as much as the thought bubbles.
Your creativity always makes me smile!
That's awesome! I love it
this is amazing! i love, love, love! come to north carolina and do it here too!
that's really cute! good job katie.
I love this! I've been obsessed with shadows for a long time. I need to know how to take a photo of my own shadow without the shadow mimicking my holding the camera. And I need it to be taken from my view point. How do I do this? I don't think I can buy a super spy camera and have it installed in my mouth, triggering it with my tongue or something!
So anyway, I simply adore your project. I love having the unsuspecting passerby be included in your art.
wow your so creative... just when i think you can't think of anything more amazing then what you have already done you always surprise me with something cooler. This is awesome!
That is awesome! What a fun idea.
so creative and wonderful! I love how so many of your projects have the sole purpose of bringing a smile to the viewers face!
You are too much — this is so fun! How clever!
Wow, this is so neat! I am going to share it on my blog. What a great idea. I love the balloons one. I hope my niece comes across on in Brooklyn.
That is so adorable! You go girl!
very cute idea!!
you are so creative :o)
genius! i love this idea so much - what a fun way to brighten someone's day.
These are so awesome! In my mind you are a creative genius...i love these.
I love this idea. So silly and fun. I wish I would have thought of it.
Wow!! i like the proyect, is nice and original
Love this. Keep doing these whimsical things...they make me laugh!
You guys are so AWESOME. What great ideas!!
How very Peter Pan of you. I love it.
This is sooo awesome, I love it!
u r amazing!
Your photography projects are always so much fun! I have no idea what sort of crazy things my shadow is doing.
Someone just forwarded me a link to your blog. You've made my day, I love your enthusiasm & zest for life, the playfulness, the colours... amazing. You are amazing.
Thanks for blogging! Wonderful. n_n
Oh my goodness! I just turned around and caught my shadow eating pancakes covered in syrup, while I'm sitting here at my desk doing work.
you're awesome! i love this!!!
This is so brilliant! Great job!
I feel like a broken record every time I leave a comment here.
That's amazing! You are so talented!
Such a fun idea! My son has had his shadow-traced-self up on his wall over his bed for a year (at first it was actually a wee bit creepy to me but he has always loved it!). I love that you put these outside and made further art with them - your mind is just one bloom after another - fabulous!
You are such a sweet, lovely goddess of mirth and inspiration. I am forever enthralled by your ingenuity.
This is a wonderful idea, thanks!
gosh, you lead such a thrilling life. I wonder what it must feel like being so creative!
p.s, absolutely love your place!
How fun, I love it! I think these would look great on my daughter's wall too, something that we could afford to change occasionally and that she would love! :)
omg this is awesome! may I know what inspires you all the time?
I love to see what great ideas your whimsical mind comes up with--your blog is always such a delight!
This is such a cool idea and you've done a great job executing it! I can't believe how well the shadow's feet match up with those of the passers-by.
gosh, you are too cute... wish our shadows could be friends and run around doing fun things!!!
you are amazing! i wish i lived in brooklyn and discovered your surprises. x
What a fantastic project, I love all of the images!
Your shadows are very cool! I really like the one with the ballons...

This is fantastic. I was trying to figure out a way to make some 'fake' shadows for my current photography project. I was inspired by Laura Marling's 'New Romantic' video clip. Find it on youtube. I think you might like it.
