Reality is how you actually perceive it. When you look at yourself in a mirror, the image you see is often very different from what friends or relative see from you.
Depending on your mood, you can see things as all very beautiful, smiling, fun, or as a contrary, dark, sad, torn. Or something in-between.
The processing here was relatively simple: I shot a self portrait, cut slices in my face, positioned them accordingly, and added torn paper photos in the background. The shots were all done using the same light setup, and some shadows were added with a gentle brush.
Hope you like it!
