The Mirror Project is a site that showcases self-portraits made using various types of reflective surfaces--from mirrors to silverware. In the portrait at right, Kimberly Massengill makes good use of the Plexiglas pane of a New York bus shelter. A movie poster that contains the image of a large eye "looks" over her shoulder.
A photographer for 20 years, Massengill learned about the Mirror Project from a friend who shares her interest in "found art."
