Sarah Bodri elegantly eludes all our expectations with her series Reflet. Shot during a residency on the Toronto Islands, Bodri captures her subject with a mirror held up in front of her face, the image becoming a strange abstraction of body, ocean and sky. The mirror is raised to the world above, thwarting our ability to get any sense of what is reflected in the object or what is behind it. The surface acts as a both a shield and a portal, the surreal unknowableness of the image becoming the true fascination. Reflet aims to defy standard photographic tropes as well as complicate stereotypical notions of female identity. Here we have no direct gaze, but a murky vision that is both alluring and elusive.
