Shadow art is booming in popularity but will probably never get old, because it’s so hard to comprehend how someone maps out a detailed silhouette and then recreates it with what looks like a random assortment of objects. It never loses its mystery, and Larry Kagan’s stencil-like shadow art is no exception.

Aspiring to “induce viewers to actually look at the shadow rather than solely at the steel,” Kagan focused on creating as much detail as possible in the shadow itself, adding tiny gaps of space to produce the illusion of highlights or shine. Flip through the gallery of his work below, and be sure to check out his website.
