LIght's Festive Tents

Photography is underpinned by metaphysics of sight and shadow. I shall write another time more about Shadows but it seems to me that Shadow is a disruptive element in the conventional painterly dialectic of Figure and Ground. I could argue that Shadow is a more natural counterpart to Ground, these being both of the 2D world and because in painting or photography the Light that reveals Figure is practically limited by Shadow.
