BEAUTY: Photography--Sebastian Magnani

Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani hit upon a great idea. For his Reflections series, he photographs two different view points at once: by placing a mirror on the ground, he captures what is below but also what is above. I love seeing the sun-dappled, shadow-y forest floor as well as the tree canopy overhead!

His Artist Statement about the series is poetic, off-kilter, and meandering:
"It’s all about the great thing about mirrored mild. It’s like a universe, a small planet, with a number of risk’s in distinction of buildings, colors, moods and numerous lightnings, the fascination of interaction like nature and civilization, or the gravitation between life and death, such as in the rose blossoms, in which the tree in the mirror full of life and color radiates, on the floor, the sheet but already on is wilting. And finally, a really important thing, the key for self-development, the selfreflection, which is always crucial to progress. Compare new with the old, removed again, be fond of discovery, then back to the origins, an interplay that keeps us moving, we can feel the life."
