The ‘Shadow Self’: Meeting our demons and wrestling with the devil

The ‘Shadow Self’: Meeting our demons and wrestling with the devil

A series of illustrations designed by Oussama Zouaimia inspired by the photograph Gabriel Isak & Carl Jung and his theory on the shadow self.

The shadow goes by many familiar names: the disowned self, the lower self, the dark twin or brother in bible and myth, the double, repressed self, alter ego, id. When we come face-to-face with our darker side, we use metaphors to describe these shadow encounters: meeting our demons, wrestling with the devil, descent to the underworld, dark night of the soul, midlife crisis.”

You can check out the project on Behance. Learn more about Oussama Zouaimia and the project.
