Series name: Broken Mirrors
Year: 2016
Medium: Photography
Style: Portraiture, Surrealist

For more than ten years, Torsten Solin has been working on the theme of mirroring. The broken mirror is Solin’s metaphor for the filter of subjective perception and its role in the mechanisms of constructing identity, reality and truth. It is the argument for the impossibility of any objectivity.

The broken, fragmented, dismembered is sabotaging and irritating the satisfaction of the viewer’s voyeuristic curiosity, it asks for more imagination, fantasy and does not reduce the distance from the real subject.

The resulting distortion of the face and body leaves the mirrored image to be recognised as a whole. However, it also creates at the same time a new and unknown reproduction of reality that is not only questioning the truth of the reflected image, but also the photograph itself.
