Reflecting on reflections
This is just a little book, A6 landscaped, and every page is wall-to-wall full-colour photographs of images reflected on glass, through glass, on top of other reflections, shafts of light and colour. It makes you think. It makes you reflect.
It reminded me of that line from Susanne Vega in ‘Tom’s Diner’: ‘No she does not really see me, but she sees her own reflection’.
This slender publication had me reflecting on myself reflecting on the reflections, the mixture of word and picture. So many layers, so few words, but every one necessary. I liked the pictures. I liked the mixture of human beings and models in shop windows. And there is even a sort of a story.
Something about it ... still reflecting.
