Reflections are a deep, philosophical subject more than a photographic one for me, and one I love exploring and working on at any chance I get.
Photography is never real; it’s just a bi-dimensional representation of a four-dimensional reality. Photography is an interpretation of reality. Reflections are optical illusions, mere perceptions of reality. I always considered reflection photographs to be images telling tales of something in between two worlds.
To tell my tales, I often like to introduce elements breaking the perfect symmetry of my reflections; visual anchors, points of interest, or simply something hidden in the image, something that you can’t really see but it’s there if you look for it.
Photographing reflections is an exploration of the interplay between what we perceive as real and what is just a perceived image of that perception. This collection is a 4-year slice of that exploration.
