lilli carré's shadows
the top photo made me remember to post photos of this mini art book of lilli carré's. it's part of little otsu's wonderful mini art book series, living things. lilli's is about shifting shadows. i love her work.
the way lilli interpreted her theme reminded me of this swedish kids picture book i read when i was little. in it, a kid is afraid of the dark because at night, he sees monsters everywhere. but the outlines he sees, which do look like monsters, turn out to be innocuous things when the lights are turned on—oh, that trickster perception.
