Note
Over the past two decades, Anne Collier has not only investigated how we see, but has also questioned how we are seen. From close-up views of her own eyes to more traditional self-portraits that document her face and body, she has taken ocular mechanics – and the camera lens as an extension of our ability to see – as the starting points for her work. In this quiet but witty self-portrait, Collier captured part of her face and her camera reflected in a mirror ball, itself a dizzying optical device that splinters the world into a kaleidoscopic field of visual shards. Collier's eye is almost positioned at the center of the composition, literally and figuratively the eye of the storm from which all sight and insight stem.

A print of this image is in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (M.2004.250).
