Shadow Hunters Contest Round # 171: Museum Shadows
Museums, metaphorically speaking, could be perfectly considered as genuine time capsules, which bring together a series of wonderful objects from all times and places, capable by themselves of awakening all kinds of feelings in the viewer.
It is true, on the other hand, that the lights, the spotlights and the inserts that protect these objects on many occasions, are not the best allies when it comes to allowing brilliant photographs to be taken.
But, curiously, these same drawbacks are nevertheless allies when it comes to locating the shadows that these objects cast, either the floors or the walls of the different rooms that house them.
An example of this are these beautiful, delicate and invaluable pieces, called ‘Nautilus Cups’, the work of the 16th century Flemish artist, Cornelius Floris, which are exhibited in the Permanent Collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid.
