Maria Baoli’s photo series, Kaleidoscopic, highlights a geometric tear in time and space; a tear that gives way to a realm of beautiful gestures and romantic imagery. The Brussels based artist achieves this feat by placing a triangular in quotidian surroundings. These mirrors reflect an opposing sentiment in comparison to their backgrounds. The whole experiencing is one of endearing contrast and intriguing duality.
