Shards of Reality
"And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's going to buy you a dancer's joke."
Fragmented reality comes to my mind. Very powerful. Such creativity here. Wonderful work. V
Au départ, une idée originale et créative; à l'arrivée, une galerie captivante, dans les multiples reflets de laquelle le regard éclate et se fragmente avec délice. Belle réussite. Voté.
Your creativity is amazing. I love this gallery. Such great impact. Deserves to be seen by a wide audience. VOTE
Split personalities? I'd say so...but it's cool to think of a world where there were more than just one of that person in the mirror. I think the world could be a better place then. No. I think that it WOULD be a better place then.
Phenomenal Gallery. A great idea well executed. Strangely this is the second time I am
going to compare someone's pictures w/ film images of the famous avant guard film maker
Maya Deren. Don't worry you are in good company the other photographer was our friend
Lester Weiss. Voted.
Somewhat disturbing with the eyes in color. In the images with no obvious human reflection it's even more disturbing since it seems like some sort of loss has occured, the viewer anxious that something's been overlooked.
Concept would work great as an album cover. A modern "Meet the Beatles" style.
Incredible concept, flawlessly executed. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me and always provokes a strong emotional response. Your photography often has an introspective quality that reveals something universal in each of us as you take a closer look at your inner self. I'm haunted by these images.
These images are absolutely stunning. Voted!!!

Great idea for a gallery. Very creative.
A winning (and sharp) idea Christine!
very interesting concept!
I should have also said that I think the title of the gallery, Shards of Reality, is a perfect fit.--Rene
Great idea and really well done. Regards Bygaspo
Well defined and creatively executed. Powerful and emotional work.--Rene
I really had to take a double-take when I saw these images for the first time. Christine,
you've done a great job here with an original concept, and developing it so well. Thank
you for sharing, and inspiring me! Wonderful...and moving.
What could I add, that has not already been said?
I love the creativity and the graphic look of this very personal gallery.
Cool gallery. Voted.
Superbe galerie Christine, mon vote :)
Very creative,very different.....v
Stunningly creative. Your work always knocks me off my feet. vote.
Great and beautiful collection and title, Christine, my vote.
Another superb, and very creative gallery Christine! The images are fascinating,
and I admire your imagination. Big Vote!
a very nice series. the idea is cool and you have carried it out well. it's at an intersection between the real and the abstract. the fragmentary reflections of your face turn it into abstract self-portraiture.
A superb artistic effort, "reflecting" the superior eye of the artist. Kudos! zM
A great gallery and a great idea... Scattering of glass, but density of talent, here...
Une galerie d'une tres grande creativite!
Bravo et VOte!

Du talent à l'état pur.
Brilliant fragments of self. V
Superbe! Le cubisme revu par Christine.
J'aime beaucoup cette idée d'autoportrait fragmenté par les tessons représentant chacun 'une' facette de la réalité.
Very clever idea and well executed!
Very striking images Christine. Wonderful concept and finished work!
Your photography works on many levels. You are so good at that.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and your family.

Spectacular gallery, clever idea. GMV
Very creative gallery! As always wonderful job!
Very artistry gallery and title too.. ~V~
Disintegration. Disgregation. Desynching. Fragmentation. Suffocation. I see a lot of meanings here. I'm a bit scared... Vote.
Travail intriguant, original et créatif. Belle galerie!
What a gallery with a strong mood, I like this kind of photography a lot and you did it great. A big vote for this one!!!
Happy New Year Christine with lots of love, peace, happiness and creative photos ;)
Bravo, très bien!
Et c'est tu ca que tu fais quand quelqu'un te dit de te casser? (Casse toi!)
J'espère que ce n'est pas toi qui a cassé le miroir tu sais les 7 ans de malheur peuvent-être vraiment long......
Bravo Christine, Très bien vu, très créatif, très expressif.
I like very much this post-modern version of my "Through the Looking Glass".
From start to finish - from the absence of reflection, through the integral parts that make the person, and ending with fingers reaching inward - this is so excellent Christine..
To me, this speaks of acceptance and transformation. The shards come slowly together reflecting a picture which is now different than it once was. It is broken.
But it also is (or will be) whole again. It is like a doorway, I see awareness and willingness to enter into a new experience...
Intense, creative, dramatic, tender, nostalgic, rhythmic, variated...
In one word... no words.
Striking opener to 2007!!!
Bravo to concept and elaboration Christine! You are a genius!!!
