These 37 Amazing Images Created By Shadows Turn Ordinary Objects Into Art

Did you ever make shadow puppets as a kid? I feel like everyone did at least once. There is something oddly satisfying about using shadows, rather than light, to create an image. 

Who knows why that is? Perhaps it is because it is the opposite of what we've been trained to see. Perhaps it is because it feels powerful to bend light to our will. Whatever the case may be, shadows are pretty cool.

Check out these images below that go beyond your simple shadow puppets.
