Doubletalk, New York City, New York, 2010

I make this image of a cellular conversation incongruous by the incorporating the reflection in the background. The gesture is repeated twice, as is the intense expression. A logo of a reflected truck fills the background, while a mysterious headless figure is also reflected between the truck and the woman on the phone.

That's how I felt as well, Tim -- she seems to be struggling with an idea here, and is trying to work it out. The fact that she is doing it in doubletalk here, without realizing it, leads us to feel that sense of intensity you mention even more vividly.

The intensity of her face and gesture, for me add another dimension to reflection - it is as if she is have a deep discussion or disagreement with herself.
