This specific story explores the physical form, two bodies mirroring each other, who represent distinct ends of a spectrum. The feminine and the masculine existence reflected in all of us. The use of wide-angle lenses deform the model’s bodies and their faces are sculpted with reflected sunlight, using mirrors giving the viewer a sensation of body transformation.
