" Can I Take Your Picture?"  (2010)


  You don’t see yourself from day to day.

  There’s the me I can’t see, and the me I’m used to    

  seeing in mirrors, windows...


  I instinctively avert my gaze the moment I catch the eye of the me

  I see in reflections.


  How really is the me that I see?

  Is that me? Is it the me inside of me?

  Or is it a me quite different from me?


  Yet the moment when I ask myself this is the moment

  I’m no doubt right here.


The idea behind my project is to combine two photographs into one.The first photo is a snapshot that is taken while the subject is unaware that they are having their photograph taken. For the second photo I ask the person from the first photograph if they can pose for me while I take their photo.For both photographs the camera is fixed in the same place so that each picture has the same frame.
