My true selves...

since i started taking photographs a year or so ago, i have wanted to try and do a version of Remedios Varo's "the lovers":

Though both images dont reach what I saw in my mind, I am happy with one of them.
The second image is closest to what i was trying to create. In the first image, it was those damned faces in the mirrors that were tripping me up. Scale becomes important and the fact that I am looking at the camera and not myself, bothers me tremendously.
anyway, here they are in all their...well, im not sure what...
