Using reflective surfaces in my constructs, it is often unclear whether an image is the thing itself or its reflection. I avoid the traditional horizon, and the compositions can become purposefully disorienting. A photographic image can be thought of as a belief system in itself, and as such, I hope to create a structure infused with doubt.
