Sharing Online Portraits

Two photographers that I took a great interest in throughout our course of study are Duane Michals and Vivian Maier. I became very interested in the use of mirrors in photographic images that both artists created. The images are compelling and have such an element of intrigue to them. In some ways, the images have made me reminisce about investigative photography–because the subject matter propels you into such private and mysterious moments in time. These two images, Mirror of Uncertainty and Self Portrait have inspired me to create a mirror-based series of portraits for Project 5.
