It’s Just A Reflektor.


Mirrors are a common trope in photography, but no less fun or exciting even though they are used a lot. Today I put together some of my favorite mirror play photos, from surreal eye benders of  Yeong Ja Jung to photos by the grandmother of the selfie, Vivian Maier, a street photographer and nanny who passed away in obscurity. On her days off she roamed the streets of New York and Chicago, leaving over 100,000 photos, many still undeveloped. Her work was rescued after her death.
