I’m not there

Pol Úbeda Hervàs has created an incredible series of illusion photographs called I’m not there.  The photographer from Barcelona portrays his work by asking, “How can we accept that we are changing? How can we accept we hardly recognize ourselves in certain situations? I am changing at this very moment of my life. I do not react in the same ways I used to. I am surprised. Is that me?” Pol Úbeda Hervàs photographs just the shoes of the subject and includes the reflection or shadow in the image. This approach installs a sense of mystery and illusion to the photographs. He explains, “These pictures are the way I see myself now. My shadow is there but I erase myself because I don’t know who I am any longer. The shoes remain only to make sure there is something more than a shadow.”
