Conceptual photography is a type of photography that illustrates an idea. There have been illustrative photographs made since the medium’s invention, for example in the earliest staged photographs, such as Hippolyte Bayard’s Self Portrait as a Drowned Man (1840).
We all know “changing the shadow of an object” kind of photo-works to reflect the idea of “you are actually, from the inside, more than what people think or see you are”. For exemple taking a photo of the Knight it self and for its shadow putting a real horses shadow instead. The idea in this artwork was to find a way of overcoming a visual cliché, and that is to go overboard with the actual cliché itself! So by using the same principale I tried to overcome this visual cliché with the same visual cliché, only this time by using kitchen tools which are ordinary objects and changing their shadows according to what they have brought in my mind first. Like this the shadows might have multiple interpretations as well.
