Everything into something else

35x42 cm
Silver gelatin print on baryta paper
2015

This work consists of photographs of mirrors that have lost the ability to reflect an image (bronze mirrors from the Egyptian, Greek and Roman periods). The camera can stand in front of them without being reflected and is able to observe the oxidized surface where no image can appear anymore.
The film was inverted, presenting the print as a negative, so the light (necessary for an image formation) will ‘touch’ the mirror’s surface, giving an unexpected physical quality to it.
