who am I?!

According to John Stezaker I found on of my photos from my previous work I have done, I thought it's kind of matches. where this girl is looking at mirror and seeing different her, and not realising who is she actually.

INSIRING WORK: John Stezaker


British artist John Stezaker is fascinated by the lure of images. Taking classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations, Stezaker makes collages to give old images a new meaning. By adjusting, inverting and slicing separate pictures together to create unique new works of art, Stezaker explores the subversive force of found images. Stezaker’s famous Mask series fuses the profiles of glamorous sitters with caves, hamlets, or waterfalls, making for images of eerie beauty.
His ‘Dark Star’ series turns publicity portraits into cut-out silhouettes, creating an ambiguous presence in the place of the absent celebrity. Stezaker’s way of giving old images a new context reaches its height in the found images of his Third Person Archive: the artist has removed delicate, haunting figures from the margins of obsolete travel illustrations. Presented as images on their own, they now take the centre stage of our attention



Human Planet is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind's incredible relationship with nature in the world today.
Uniquely in the animal kingdom, humans have managed to adapt and thrive in every environment on Earth. Each episode takes you to the extremes of our planet: the arctic, mountains, oceans, jungles, grasslands, deserts, rivers and even the urban jungle. Here you will meet people who survive by building complex, exciting and often mutually beneficial relationships with their animal neighbours and the hostile elements of the natural world.

In the hussel and the bussel of urban life it's easily forgotten; Lets not forget where we came from!

London Street Photography

couple days ago I went to see London Street photography in Museum of London. excellent photographs. Thru years, photography has changed and London as well. Collection of street photography from the nineteenth century to present, detailing the changing nature of life. has been where years ago photographs of London was more political, then now I have noticed that it was more about environment and people in it. I seriously suggest everyone to visit it.
