The photo of me looking at my shadow on the backdrop with my arms spread is actually me trying to get the lamp operator to aim the light on a dark spot.

My interpretation of the "cave" is that the persons casting the shadows are teachers - casting dim shadows of the real subject. You're a dynamite teacher so maybe Plato wasn't always right, I don't get the feeling you're casting too many faint shadows as your career has advanced.
I was explaining the myth of Plato's cave to the crew...

Then again, it might just be me madman!
That is an eerily beautiful picture!
Sometimes, I think there should be an annual exhibition about the set photographs published in industry mags or made for media outreach. They might be more evocative to look at than most of the shallow movieware that floods the multiplexes.
(well, i guess you probably have something like that already for an exhibition in one of the many galleries over in L.A. . So no new idea to create something fresh, I fear)
