Photography by Amy Kotthaus
These pieces, much like my other visual works, are filtered in differing degrees of black and white in order to neutralize color. The eye is drawn to the enhanced outlines of shadow and texture. I often take pictures of shadows to emphasize exactly what I am seeing as the effect of what is not seen.
