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
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.
