This image, one of a series, is less distinct in portraying the message. Every image in this series is a photographed reflection. I titled the series, “Private Reflections.” My goal was to capture an honest and intimate moment of the model, shooting at angles from behind her, minimizing my presence as photographer by taking the photos of her reflection through the mirror. Unfortunately, the photographer or whomever is documenting reality will always disrupt the privacy of the moment to some extent. I instructed Lucy to focus on herself, her touch, and her reflection. Also, to ignore me and the clicking of my shutter. Have I succeeded in capturing something unique and honest? If so, then I would deem it art.
