In Shadows: Stunning Silhouette Lomographs


There are no secrets in this week's Community selection as we present you a revealed mystery right here in Lomography!

What is that you may ask? What else could it be but a selection of stunning Lomographs tagged under ‘silhouette.’ Yes, identities and expressions are hidden in this collection of Lomographs for there are only shadows and figures to show. But that doesn’t mean that true beauty in analogue is forsaken, too!

And since there are too many lovely Lomographs tagged under this theme, we give you not 50, not 55, but 60 amazing Lomographs! Enjoy!
