John Marshall is the guy behind the cardboard.
He’s a nine-time Emmy award-winning TV producer and writer as well as the author of the critically acclaimed memoir Wide-Open World. “This collection started while I spent some time living in a small cabin on Frye Island, Maine. After watching gorgeous sunsets right out my back door, I decided to start a creative project I’m calling Sunset Selfies. When I’m on the island, I make one cardboard cutout each night and take a silhouette picture with it”. John Marshall
“My hope is that others, especially kids, will see that they can make these too. I’d love to see what they come up with. Anyway, for me, there is something magical in these images. I love to watch my crude cutouts come to life in silhouette and then see how people respond to them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do”.
