Guillaume Amat Places Mirrors Into Landscapes to Look Behind and Beyond
For his project Open Fields, photographer Guillaume Amat worked with the concept of territory and space. He placed a mirrored stand in various landscapes, reflecting the facing environment back within the image to create a double interpretation of the surrounding scene. Each image is taken with a 4×5 inch camera, the included mirror measuring 31.5 x 47.2 inches.
Independent curator and writer Paul Wombell says, “With the use of the camera and a mirror, Guillaume Amat has made photographic images that simultaneously look forward and backwards. They create a strange dreamlike landscape where buildings and figures float in the center of the picture and suggest that he has two sets of eyes, both at the front and back of his head. Orpheus would have been impressed.”
