19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Dining with me and myself

This image represents a mental health issue called depersonalization, in which a person can feel detached from one's self. Some people describe the feeling as if they were outside observers of their own body. Therefore, in the image I represent the same person having dinner with two of his other selves. The subject's face is blurred to represent that people who suffer from depersonalization sometimes do not recognize their own faces in the mirror.
