Here's a lovely set of photographs from Michael Neff. Chalk outlines around shadows. Lovely. Really good. Just sat there waiting to get ripped off by an ad agency...

Check Zevs work, in Paris, in the '90s, with paint:

Lovely photos. You are so right, though. It has already been done in an ad campaign. This is a video from an online campaign for the GAP called sound of color. The graffiti artist in this case is Ellis G. Still a beautiful idea.

i like neff better. the outlines are similar (if not the same concept) but neff takes it with the photography.
