Upon first glance, this series reminded me of Rob Mulholland's acrylic glass statues, but this collection of work titled Mirrored is actually the work of artistic duo Tim Maslen and Jennifer Mehra, aka Maslen & Mehra. The photographers and installation artists take the silhouettes of people and animals and present them as figurative mirrors placed across beautiful, expansive landscapes. The thought-provoking photo series “raises issues of the human existence and alludes to the impermanence and fragility of mankind.” Furthermore, the body of work seems to be a reminder that all humans are of this earth. Mankind is a reflection of his surroundings.
Mirrored is currently on display at Conny Dietzschold Gallery in Australia through April 30, 2012.
