This set brings all the pain of “what if”, or “if only I had . . . .” I love the original with the focus on the image in the mirror, but not the distractions of the jars and canisters. Perhaps that is "reality intruding". Version 1 removes most of that problem but the model doesn’t look involved. Version 2 cures the distractions and is a beautiful study - but with the focus now on the subject, the viewer’s eye is not immediately drawn to the reflection. My “if only” wishes:
- Version 1 without the paraphernalia and maybe a lace curtain to soften the hard lines of the window frame;
- Version 2 with the focus on the reflection in the mirror.
Having said all that, this is a beautiful series. The lighting is magical, the colors soft and warm and the soft focus just like a fairy-tale.

Sorry, had to break off before I could comment earlier, visitors arrived...
This fascinates me, particularly the main upload. I'm seeing anxiety, fear. Women watch age advancing in the mirror, Cocteau took the ides one step further in Orphée by having the mirror as the transition into death.

Love the lead image. The way Rembrandt would have seen and painted her. But what does she see. V1, is that me. V2, Who cares! Love this set John.

Very nice.

I uploaded a variation of the original to see what it would look like with the mirror alone
