Silhouettes are images or outlines of people and objects that are made by light on a dark background, or against a bright background that causes the figure to just appear as a solid, dark shape. Silhouettes can be art by themselves, but they are also frequently featured in the context of other artistic works.

Silhouettes are common in photography, because the bright natural light from sources such as the sun cause challenges with exposure for photographers. But they can also be the desired outcome of a photograph as well.

Here, I’ve featured some great examples of silhouette photography.
