Mirror Mirror

  • Christi Nielsen PRO 9y

    Which of these two images do you like the best and why? Or do you think they should be together?
  • logoparenthêtês 9y

    I like them together - just by themselves, without any context, they hint at both narcissism and its opposite - not actual self-disgust, but at least avoiding looking at oneself.

    Depending on what order you put them in, they have slightly different messages (steeling oneself to look and then doing so if this one comes last, or turning away after looking if this one comes first).

    Or maybe I'm not making any sense.
  • Christi Nielsen PRO 9y

    That makes sense to me. I agree. And this one should come first.

    How do u do this stuff???
  • Christi Nielsen PRO 9y

    much trial and error, a LOT of time, and of course the nectar of the gods (aka wine). ;-)

    thank you for your beautiful work, Christi. I've followed you for years, since the time when I started developing an eating disorder, and am happy to say I now love my body & myself. yours is the first photo I've used outside of my own on my website, and I may use others of your work in the future for other posts: s.rvxn.org/2010/09/21/you-lost-weight-is-not-a-compliment/
