The fashion world is often seen as materialistic and superficial, even though the designing and making of clothes is an art form. We are attracted by the beauty in the ­window ­displays, wishing to aquire the ­creations we see and desire.
But the display also ­reflects something else; the beauty you can not buy that is seen through the glass. The sea, the sky, the trees and ­the architecture. It is this merge of two worlds, in the layers of what is displayed in the ­fashion shops and on the other side of the street, that is ­reflected in the ­Mirror Mirror project.
The artist: 
Vivi A is a Norwegien ­Graphic ­Designer and artist based in Cannes, who runs her own ­design company ­OuiCannes Design.
Her photo art project “Mirror ­Mirror” ­started in 2014, as a natural part of her ­ongoing creativity. The photographic ­images are not ­manipulated or edited in any post ­production, but taken as “one shot” ­utlilising a ­special ­photo ­technique so as to enhance the layers and ­colors and make the photos ­three-dimensional.
As an argument against the current ­trend of over manipulations of photos, it was ­important that the pictures should not be ­edited ­afterwards, but be just as they ­appeared when the ­picture was ­taken, using a special filter.
All of the photos are taken in Cannes, of the ­luxury shops on the Boulevard de la ­Croisette and the high fashion stores in ­Rue d’Antibes.
