|Elina Brotherus - Le Miroir, 2000|
This series of the photographers reflection slowly appearing is really intriguing. At first I thought they were all the same photograph, but then realised the condensation on the mirror disappears. Alot of Elina's photographs explore female, and male form, and how they appear in their surroundings.

In the book there are then a series of landscape photographs, these ones are about half sky, some of them are only showing a small slither of land at the bottom on the frame. These photographs are pretty bleak, but the textures are really incredible. At first glance these two photos look of similar material, although the top one seems to be a soft mossy, grassy area, and the other a hard rocky, sandy beach. I really like how the second photo just fades off into the distance, I'm not sure if it's the sky or the see.
