Magrelli’s Meerrors Project depicts mirrors’ reflections when we are not there to gaze at them. The project explores the categorization of self-portraits and still life while simultaneously combining the two. What does it mean to be gazing at the reflection now, when, presumably this is what we don’t get to see when looking into a mirror? Magrelli’s photography is quite philosophical in the questions it raises and its exploration of mediums and significance.
