Barbie and her reflection:

For these images, I submerged a Barbie doll(s) and myself in my backyard pool and then aimed my camera upwards towards the doll and under-side of the pool's surface.

The resulting images of both doll and her distorted reflection pit what is “true” vs. what is "false." The paint, the reflections, and the Barbie doll herself, all present a reality that is simultaneously distorted and representational. This overlap of tensions and contrasts allow the visceral and the intellectual to reinforce and reflect one another in continuing, mirroring dialogue that I hope includes the concept of Barbie as societal ideal.
