Why is it that reflections attract the artistic eye so? Is it the ghost-like excitement of that we can see but can’t touch? The imperfect mimicry of the visual echo teases the eye with visions of fleeting unworldliness amongst the solid, explained, and mundane. The wiggly contours of the human face on a puddle of rainwater. The dry mirage of summer sun ricocheting from window glass to city stone. How about the hyper-visual bonding of neon and raindrops on a rainy night? Even the flawless mirror image of mirrors can be interesting in it’s reverseness — or perhaps perverseness? The list may go on and on, but for us dear reader, time grows short. For all of photography is but a reflection, and this month 1650 is here to help sort it out. So wash your window and shine your chrome, this time it’s not you we want…. it’s the reflection of your perfection we yearn to see.
