Reflections

"Reflections" is a black and white... documentary-style photography series, of personal living spaces of renowned African 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 as the subject is reflected in it. “Reflections,” liberates the eye to move about within the boundaries of the image, not encompassing it all in one glance. The exercise reveals the unforeseen and true nature of the individual. It is the challenge of locating the subject's image in the mirror that becomes an intriguing and rewarding experience. Each image is accompanied by my personal written memoirs of the photo shoots that further draws the viewer into the space. The text reveals a creative collaboration of dialogue between my subjects and me and culminates into an emergence of art and information sharing. Can you find the icon in the mirror?
