shadow as a subject in my photos

Obviously since I started to photography, every time I was searching for a unique subject for my photography. Especially between years 2001-2003 I did lots of photography with shadows topic, but all of them was with black and white film.

While 2013 I’m moving from countries to another country, in this case I didn’t had a chance for taking them with me, but now i decide to stay in Berlin, I will bring my all photographs from my home tow Tabriz to Berlin. really i miss them.
