I started this project on my birthday, in quarantine. The idea was to elevate a novelty item (the disco mirror ball) into fine art. I love the way the light reacts with mirrored surfaces and different times of day so I really wanted to create surreal images with (basically) a toy.
The image with 3 mirror balls and the Rose gold images are inspired by the works of Rene Magritte.
Color study of blues and orange.

When the stay at home orders started, like so many I went through a roller coaster of emotions. At the highest of highs I was having fun with my family, working out, going on walks…at my lowest, I needed an outlet which I found in the form of this photo series that I shot either on my phone or remotely with my camera. They started off as just something to do and became studies of color, shapes, and reflections. I also really worked hard to evoke a different emotion in each self-portrait just by using my hands. Desperation, hope, whimsy, compassion are words that were in my mind at the time.
