Various - Mirrors
Looking his/her own face in the mirror is one of the most painful experience in life since it's the place we can see time doing its destructive task. But this mirror is also the only way to explore the image others have of us. See above how we try to break the secret of our inner truth looking at this stranger's face, whatever our age. This thema is often used in photography but most provide really mediocre and poorly semantic images. Here are some I gathered and that I found transporting an interesting emotional content. Most often it's children. Lacking are the picture equivalents of the Leon Spilliaert or Pierre Bonnard self-portraits in the mirror. Maybe they exist but I didn't find them. And below, a sonor illustration, one of the best Ian Hunter songs.
