    About The Work

    Following on their acclaimed first joint effort, a book entitled Ode to Happiness, Alexandra Grant has reunited with actor and writer Keanu Reeves to create a new body of work called Shadows. Soon to be published by Steidl Press, the book Shadows explores the real and symbolic nature of the shadow as image and figure of speech. Grant's photographs capture Reeves's shadow at times as a silhouette portrait and at others as traces of light as he and the camera move together. In transforming the images into color and reversing light for dark, Grant has made the shadows themselves the source of light. A celebrated colorist, Grant brings her painter's palette and sensibility to the digital photography process.

    These first ten Shadows prints are a selection from over 140 photographic works, and will be available in a limited edition of 3.

    In the book Shadows, soon to be published by Steidl Verlag, Grant's Shadows photographs will be accompanied by texts written by Reeves that give voice to the multiple manifestations of the shadow: as a projected figure, a place of concealed emotion, and an invocation to shadow play.
