The Reflections folder in the SVA Pictures Collection is slim but no less interesting for it. It is one of those somewhat abstractly titled selections in the same vein as the “Movement” and “Bells & Whistles” folders, and is similarly rewarding and surprising to peruse. The images in the folder speak to the ethereal nature of reflections - the way looking into one is almost like looking into another world. That reflections - in the windows of buildings, in glasses, in bodies of water, among others - offer a glimpse into something like another dimension (or a parallel universe) is evident in many of the images in the folder: a set of townhouses are mirrored by their spooky doubles; an old building reflected in a new skyscraper hints at a city’s history; an iceberg’s visual echo in water looks like a painting.
