The Series Spiegelblick which translates into English as Mirror View shows four people looking at their reflection through a one-way mirror.
The mirror is made of glass with a sheet of foil which acts like a mirror from one side and a transparent glass from the other. The glass is between the person and the camera, separating them and leading the person to think they are alone with their reflection. The person behaves the same way they would in front of the mirror, making the same poses that they make every morning.
Meanwhile, the viewer stands from the position of the camera and looks through the glass at the person who appears to look straight at them. The only evidence of the glass are the air bubbles and scratches, which can clearly be seen on the silver gelatine print.
