In praise of shadows

 "Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty"

I finished reading  Junichiro Tanisaki's book "In praise of shadows" some time ago. It got me thinking that I really agree when he says that it takes a lot of hiding and dark areas in the background for beauty to grasp our conscience.
Would there be any beauty in this blog if it did not hide so many things from everyday life? Don't we have to forget about injustice to enjoy any form of art?

You can read it online at this pdf  link from NY's School of Visual Arts
