Via Conscientious and I Like This Art.

Mandy Corrado is a 28 year old former art student who began working as a figure model in her senior year at The Art Institute of Chicago. One day she had the idea to create her own art from the process and began to bring a gilded mirror and a camera into the studios where she would snap herself and whoever was in her view during the few breaks given to the model.

The results, as you can see, are intriguing and wholly original - a sly inversion of the conventional view. That's Mandy, below, in close-up and the rest are from her series "Reflections of the Muse". You can see even more here on her own website, and read her artist's statement.
