Portraiture - pure nift

Under a different light

Mirrors lie! These trusted oracles of self-image show us only from a single angle, usually expressionless, and then reverse it too! It sounds ridiculous but most people don't really know what they look like, and it's sad how common it is for someone to irrationally hate their smile in the face of overwhelming evidence: literally everyone loves to see their friends' smile.

I'm not trying to show you "what you really look like", I'm just offering a second opinion. No less true than a mirror, if a bit more fantastical. Exploring & glamorising the vulnerability in letting others see you.
