Mirrors are curious things. They contain the world, yet they are different in a kind of eerie way that sometimes makes me a bit uncomfortable. Well it’s a Saturday night and I’ve spent the last few hours trying to come up with something clever to blog about and I happened to glance over at my dresser where I’ve put a mirror I just recently purchased. I was struck with this wonderful idea to waste an hour taking self portraits for no apparent reason.
While doing this, I started to think about how doing these portraits of myself will help me to get a better sense of who I am…I’m not sure if that made sense…let me try and explain. Taking photographs with the assistance of the mirror makes everything backwards, or the opposite of what it actually is. Which, in turn, causes you to look at yourself in a different way.
Leave a comment with your opinions on the power of mirrors (or lack of). These are what I ended up with. Feedback would be lovely ( :
