• Artist's statement

      Within this series of photographs I have set out to produce images that play on the power relations between subject and observer. Within each image of this series the subject holds a mirror. The mirror prevents the observer from seeing the subjects face and instead reflects the scene around the subject. My idea to use a mirror is a play on the notion of folklore that suggests that mirrors represent and reveal the truth of what passes before them, but here they only obstruct, leaving the observer dissatisfied or frustrated.
