Long before selfies became popular, I posed the question: what do we see when we look in the mirror? What do others see when we enter public space? Mirror Faces combined experience, event, photography, with the rigor of scientific experiment. A large group of people were invited to an event. Upon entry, they created a self portrait in a private photo booth by looking in a two-way mirror that had a camera hidden behind it. Upon leaving the booth, they would find themselves in a lively party, where they had their portrait taken in the public setting. These two images taken with very little time in between were shockingly different: one the private face, the other, the public. The subtle and sometimes overt differences in the two become a photographic representation of how we see ourselves versus how we are seen.
