‘Reflections’ explores how we interact with the camera as an object: both how we interpret its photographic outcome as audience and how we experience the camera when being photographed. The mirrors reflect the landscape where the camera should be, making us aware of it through its absence. Becoming self-conscious, whether for the camera or not, is known as ‘restored behaviour’- performance within normal social constructs.

The mirror, pointing back towards the viewer also accentuates the fact that photographs are a presentation of reality; a construct or, a snippet of a full existence offered through a limited medium.

I took these at a time when I was wrestling with the implications of the responsibilities of documentation and representation whilst studying for a documentary photography degree in 2011.
