I’ll be your mirror’ explores the polarities and dualisms of personality through the biological phenomenon of twinness. In this I use photography as a tool of visual enquiry to explore the issues surrounding the formation of identity and the possibility of an integrated sense of ‘self’. [The reflection of the self and its construction through expectation is explored by holding a mirror to the subconscious.]
The looking glass images are both a distorted mirror and a socialised construct, with the conscious and unconscious selves locked in constant struggle to create individual identity.
It is through the process of photographic portraiture that this relationship is laid open, highlighting and magnifying the surface, inviting comparison and inspection, and ultimately defined by difference.
