Skin

Arya Tabandehpoor

A few years ago, I started photographing people around me with the idea of representing the image we see in the mirror. After taking those photos, I put the glass sheet between photos and the lens to blur the images. I was then that I thought how we can have both images: the clear and the cloudy. I detached the lens from the camera body and saw the incident momentarily. Through trial and error, I finally arrived at enlargers that, when they move, they present to use the images that we perceive from each other.
