The silhouetted face
 
 
Sometimes light, catches just the very edges of the subject, showing but the superficial outline of it. It leaves our brain to extrapolate what is hidden in the contrasted darkness of the areas obscured from view. Some people want to be seen as a silhouette and fear that if we see the darkened areas for what they really are the truth will not be to the viewers liking, but in the dark the viewer is left with only the basic anatomical sense of what lays there. Like the proverbial ostrich with its head stuck in the sand our fear drives us to believe what we or they cannot see will not hurt us. Looking in the mirror may be one of the truly difficult things to do, in the stark light we need to actually look and say “I see myself”.
