Self Portrait - In the Mirror

By Me

Very nice ... robe and all!

Keith said...

Nice effect but don't believe everything you hear.

Peggi Meyer Graminski said...

Ah, I never believe *everything* I hear, but I'm always looking for something new to try in photography. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - but it's always fun to do =)

the.chronicler said...

Let's see ... did Rembrandt do the mirror thing?

Van Gogh?

M.C. Escher?

Leonard the Lion of Cochise?


Peggi Meyer Graminski said...

I believe they were all known to have used the mirror in their work (yes, even the Lion of Cochise, along with the.Chronicler...and The Privvy Tipper (who uses it ALOT =). Just curious, what do you think of the Escher quote: "Originality is merely an illusion"?

the.chronicler said...

Yeah, Privvy Tipper does like using mirrors. When we were students together in the 1980s, following the example of the greats, he taught me to appreciate that simple tactic in self-portaiture.

Perhaps Escher too understood that he was standing on the shoulders of giants, that his masterpieces were reflections of lifelong discipline and learning from those who came before him. But when I look at some of his work, I also think he was just being modest.
