Mirror trap


With his Juxt series photographer Bryce Willem avoided Photoshop and made a ‘mirror trap’ to make us think of deconstruction and transformation within photography.


As he mentioned in his manifesto ''Life is just a decorated experiment. All behaviors are seeded within hypothesis; all decisions are made upon intuition. Wether we act upon instinct or reason, we cannot always distinguish what motivated us. We simply go forth, assembling our lives from one moment to the next as best we can. This processing power is derived from our frames of reference – dependent upon the troves of information our bodies and brains have accumulated up to a given moment.

The most advantageous behavior we can exercise is a self-awareness to seek greater perspectives. From broader experience and exposure, we make more optimal and impactful choices. We must be bold to accept information that deconstructs the limits of our identities. This is the pursuit of truth. This is natural selection in the information age''.


As you may have noticed this is a topic that we at uncoated are very interested in as well. Therefore we find what Willem noted above very fitting with the juxta posing of mirrors. As they shine light on both our vanity of being only focused on ourselves versus having the self-awareness of really looking in the mirror and being honest to yourself.
