While a traditional portrait aims provide an enduring form for the representation of its subject, Study for a Mirror refutes any concept of permanence.

Printing the portrait of whoever stands before it in light, Study for a Mirror releases a fleeting, ephemeral reflection. The onlooker’s image emerges only to gradually dissolve; a reminder that, though ever-changing, it is not ever-present.
