Note: Contains nudity. Although he never set out to be an erotic art photographer, Alva Bernadine is currently well-known for his provocative and sublime imagery within this genre. His latest series shows snapshots of nude women (posing and touching themselves to reach orgasmic ecstasy) reflected in round mirrors. And because the mirrors were so small, […]

His series “A Moment’s Reflection” plays with perspective and reflection in interesting ways: by positioning a series of circular mirrors in striking landscape settings, ranging from the seas to the deserts and the mountains. It’s a simple concept, executed beautifully. Images © Cody William Smith Via […]

A Mirror Sculpture in the Landscapes

Photographer David Ryle, art director Gem Fletcher and prop builder Studio Boo have collaborated together to create “C.A.R.L.,” a striking series of photo-artworks. In them a futuristic sculpture, looking like a Japanese robot from the year 3013, is starkly shot in a set of minimalist landscape settings. The result is a thought provoking and visually stunning exploration […]

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Hilary Doyle’s artwork titled “Corner with Book” (shown above) has a type of illusional quality to it. Almost like we’re looking into a mirror, and not a painting. And although her brushstrokes are purposely visible, it is interesting to see this style of hyperrealism in comparison to the super-photographic kind like Pedro Campo’s and Mike […]

Extraordinary Mirror Illusions by Jonty Hurwitz

With an engineering degree under his belt, Jonty Hurwitz has learnt how to combine his two passions: science and art. Each one of his mirror anamorphoses “is a study on the physics of how we perceive space, and is the stroke of over 1 billion calculations and algorithms.” [1] Hurwitz makes an abstract object and projects […]

The Big Mirrored Bear

I previously featured Anna Garforth’s art creations “Bite Me Typography” and “Rethink, Reuse, Recreate.” Her latest work titled “Wandering Territory” includes a 3D cardboard bear, which illustrates animal migration and the evolving urban landscapes that spoil natural habitat. Although her sculpture is not reflecting images from the room it is placed in, it still has […]

The Mirror House duplicates the Surrounding Environment

It almost looks like part of the building is invisible. This architectural project was designed by studio MLRP—they “transformed an existing graffiti-plagued playground structure to an inviting and reflective pavilion as part of the new ‘Interactive Playground Project’ in Copenhagen.” [1] MLRP used fun house mirrors to create an interactive space for passing spectators, which […]
