Good morning everyone! Have you ever take a selfie while the sun is set? Can you imagine that you can make much more than just a selfie? Well I will introduce you to John Marshall them man who make funny and beautiful silhouette.
“This collection started while I spent some time living in a small cabin on Frye Island, Maine.
After watching gorgeous sunsets right out my back door, I decided to start a creative project I’m calling Sunset Selfies.
When I’m on the island, I make one cardboard cutout each night and take a silhouette picture with it.”
Here are some examples of his works:
On his Facebook page he explain about the process making the Sunset Selfies project:
“When I’m on the island, I make one cardboard cutout each night and take a silhouette picture with it. The process has a few simple rules:
1) I don’t have any help; I use a ten-second timer on my camera and run into the shot.
2) I don’t use any special tools; I mostly use cardboard from the town dump, a cheap pair of scissors and a common kitchen knife.
3) I don’t grab props off the web and insert them later; I only use props I find around the cabin or make myself. (Actually the dragon’s fire did come from the web, but mostly I avoid that.)”
From this very creative work he is hoping that more people would inspired, especially kids, and make something like this too.
“Anyway, for me, there is something magical in these images. I love to watch my crude cutouts come to life in silhouette and then see how people respond to them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
May you find a little magic of your own the next time you squint into the sun. As I’ve seen, whole new worlds are waiting there to come to life.”
