Mirrors: Moriah Gallagher

Mirrors are considered portals to separate realities.  Whether these be the Spirit World, other dimensions, or simply a portal of a new understanding of this dimension, mirrors hold a great deal of importance to many people to show them something they would otherwise not be able to see.  In this picture, when the viewer looks down into the mirror, they are shown a new vantage point of a classic French chandelier.  From this viewpoint, one can really see that the object is a chandelier, but they may also see it as imitation of different objects such as branches or spiders.  Not only does this mirror create a portal to this other "world", but it also distorts reality by showing the three dimensional object as a new flat object.


  1. This is one that I think certainly needs the text to read how you intend it to be. Even then I think I get a little lost. Without the text, I would say that it looks like you are shooting upwards into the chandelier. The links are interesting and the chandeliers in your last link are expensive as all get out. Vignette is pretty hard core, I think I see what you were getting at but it's a bit much for me.

  2. Ah, and I like the size of your photo on the blog. Many of them are too small to start with.
