Mirrored

  • Mirrored

  • Mirrored is an exploration of the space between the self and
    other, specifically between me and my partner Nicholas. In
    the series, two people alternately converge and diverge, their
    differences fading and becoming more apparent from image
    to image.

    From the beginning of my relationship with Nicholas,
    people have commented on our similarities. More than
    one person has remarked that we might be brothers. In the
    series, I have begun to blur the line between the subject
    and the photographer, between Nicholas and myself. The
    conventional roles of photographer and photographed began
    to break down as the project progressed and became more of
    a collaborative effort.

    Nicholas and I are parallel but not equivalent, one an inexact
    reflection of the other. The literal iteration of this reflection 
    is apparent in the landscape, functioning both as a metaphor
    and as evidence of an internal mental terrain.

    In each other, we have found ourselves — a reflection, an 
    opposite, two halves once again forming a whole.
