The suggestiveness of a silhouette is what makes it my favorite type of photograph. The who, what, where, when and why seem to become less important as we have less to base our judgements on and can truly appreciate the shape & form of the subject. It forces us to invest more time learning about the image to get answers to those questions. .
The viewer is given permission to in some way envision themselves in the picture. That may be perhaps the most powerful aspect of a silhouette.
