A long time ago I saw some great black and white images or silhouettes. I took a picture and was disappointed. As the pictures were behind glass, there were too many reflexions. I ran them through a black and white conversion. Better. Finally, I ran them through an SVG converter and now they are close to perfect. 

Some years later - or earlier - I had seen similar images on a huge wall and again fell in love.

In the meantime I have learned the the artist's name is Kara Walker. Surfing the internet, I found quite a few of the images shown above and some even more interesting ones. Surf yourself and ... enjoy the works of Kara Walker.
