Faces of mirrors

Suzette Luiken

2013 - Ongoing

In this images, you can see young adolescente, children of our time. A time where, through social media, we create images of ourselves that connect as closely as possible with what the other person wants to see. Social media and commerce even influence the way we look at ourselves. We often have other people in mind when we look at our reflections. By omitting superficial characteristics, such as taking a pose, tapping your lips, and applying filters, you automatically create space to look at the person who they are.

In my photography, I want to show that person even more strongly. In those images, I did that by putting them in a different time. It may be difficult to understand exactly which time I placed them based on the atmosphere that I applied in the photo. It could be the fifties, but my main concern is that it evokes an image of a different time, of timelessness.
