MIRROR/IMAGE was started by Riana Gideon in March 2020 to catalogue emerging, student, and professional artists working through themes of reflection, duality, likeness, and family history. 

After a month-long open call, 200 artists from 26 US states, 70 unique cities and 20 countries submitted work to articulate their version of the theme.

This project is an ongoing exploration of the explicit and nuanced ways that lens-based artists use material and lived experience to make sense of the world around them. It is also meant to act as a catalyst for collaboration, conversation, and exchange in a time of isolation and fear.
