IAP 3 exercise 3.1 mirrors and windows

Mirrors

In these images the focus is inward, with an emphasis on exploring questions of identity and personal history.

Windows

In these images the focus is outward, with the emphasis on observing character, relationships and the patterns of life. Some of them are literally taken through windows, confirming the idea of observation.

The question of looking inward or outward in photography is one that I have found very interesting since I first encountered the concept quite early on in my OCA studies. As a follow-up to this exercise I have written a post outlining some of my thoughts on the subject on my learning log.
