"Reflections" is a black and white - documentary-style photography series, of personal living spaces of renowned Americans whose lives and careers have addressed the fundamental political, economic, and social realities of the 20th Century and beyond. In each photographic image, a mirror is strategically placed in the room and the subject is reflected in it.
“Reflections” liberates the eye to move about within the boundaries of the image, not absorbing it all in a glance. The exercise reveals the unforeseen and true nature of the individual. It challenges the viewer to locate the subject's image in the mirror that becomes an intriguing and rewarding experience. Each image is accompanied by my personal written memoir that reveals a creative collaboration with my subject. Every time a person views my images, I’m asking them, “Can you find the icon in the mirror?"
