Un Espejo (A Mirror)
"UN ESPEJO (A MIRROR") is a long-term collaboration between Jackie Munro and residents of Potreillos, a small community in rural Nicaragua. The project is grounded in the belief that collaborators are both teachers and learners of ways of looking, seeing and witnessing. The camera serves as a way to record what comes of these interactions.
Like looking in a mirror, having an image made of you is a constant dialogue between who you are and who you wish to be, how you hope to be seen. As documentarians, we bring our own perspective to how we shoot. As subjects, we perform. This work explores these relationships based on a simple framework:
1. The camera changes you
2. In a way that shows your reaction to me
3. In this moment, right now.
