Mirrored Reflections Produce Beautifully Complex Landscapes


American photographer and director of photography Cody William Smith mirrors the world upon itself in these contemplative landscapes. The series, entitled A Moment’s Reflection, features a large, round mirror placed conspicuously into the dirt, the sand, or the sea in various settings. Standing upright and partially buried, the mirror interrupts the typical landscape with a reflection of another space located nearby.

The beautiful arrangements create a harmonious balance of multiple realities connecting in unexpected ways. Some circular formations stand out against darker surroundings and show off the bright skies in the distance while others blend naturally into the setting in an optical illusion of shapes.

Smith says, “My intention is to draw new connections between familiar forms by introducing specular reflections to environments where none would typically exist. The mirrors serve as a focal point within a given scene and also function as a window to provide an entirely unique perspective on the same location.”
