Am I What I See

August 17, 2015

This is a self-portrait created back in February. It was rainy and cold outside, so I opted to shoot indoors.
I wanted to created a whimsical, dark atmosphere and used two mirrors to create this photo; it was done in camera, not in Photoshop.

It reflects thoughts about identity, who we are and is our image a reflection of our character and vice versa. I've been in the middle of writing my final thesis at the time, with the theme ''The relationship between the media and society with a emphasis on beauty'', and this photo is an extension of that thought-process.

I post-processed it only a bit in Photoshop, bumping up the contrast and slightly changing the tones.
