Mirror Mirror


“Not pretty enough.”

“Not thin enough.”

“Not smart enough.”

“Not good enough.”

These phrases, the way we view ourselves, is often warped by the manufactured lens that society has created, attempting to squeeze us into a box that no one truly belongs in. It is so easy to compare ourselves, and each other, to the “perfect” people we see in the media. We pick ourselves apart, stripping away our sense of individuality until we become who we think others want us to be. Striving to be someone that we are not, straying farther away from our true selves, we often get lost in a fabricated world. “Mirror Mirror” is a photo and video series digging into a world where we question who we are, trying to reach standards that are ultimately artificial.
