Iveta is collecting angel figurines because other people tell her she’s an angel herself. In my interpretation she sees herself as angel as well, because doesn’t disagree with others concerning this question.
So my idea was to show that she associates herself with an angel. And the best way to do that was to show her as a reflection – it’s not a real person, it’s the way you see yourself. I brought a mirror to her place and quickly made the image I was aiming for.
Working with Iveta was very pleasant because she could relax, understand me in no words and allowed me to move any objects and furniture around her house for the purpose of the shoot.
