Spieëlbeeld

Spieëlbeeld

These photographs have been taken in a distorted mirror with minimal post editing, i.e the effects were created and discovered while shooting. I am curious about how self image and body image becomes distorted through what is being mirrored to us, especially women, in a society that is so obsessed with image. With Spieëlbeeld I am hoping to touch on the intangible and allow the imagination to find space to not just see an be fed an image but actually discover, feel and be drawn into it. The title for the series and most of the titles for each image are in Afrikaans as this is my mother tongue and more authentically portrays the feel of the series.
