Photography depicts what the eye sees - to a such a high degree that they're hyper real- and therefore photographs are held as empirical truths. A mirror on the other hand, a reflection of reality, cannot compare to the spectacular hyper realism exhibited in photographs. This series is an exploration by the artist of the juxtaposition of hyper-real photographic imagery over mirrored reflections, and the play of photography's mass reproducibility with the creation of unique precious' images.
