Black Shadow Portraits by Sebastiano Bianco

Published Jan 18, 2019

‘Black Shadow Portraits’ is a series of intriguing captures by Italian photographer Sebastiano Bianco. The project was inspired by the art of cameos, carved jewels, and 18th century silhouettes, in which the image is of contrasting color to the background.

“I have tried to achieve similar results using the contrast between light and darkness. The shade creates a silhouette and leaves the rest to the imagination. Each viewer can add personal, intimate details to the characters.

There is something magical and ancestral about the depths created by the color black, something we are all familiar with, as if the atavic fear of the dark we learned to overcome as children were now transformed into a magic portal through which we can access our innermost fantasies.”
