‘Mirage’ is an editorial style beauty magazine with an overarching theme of water and a strong focus on story telling in the idea of what water represents in the human mind. In dreams, water represents our inner feelings and emotions. Water can also represent illusion and deception.
When looking at moving water, it is hard to grasp a clear image of what is beneath the water. It creates distortion and figuratively, you have to dive deeper to see what’s underneath. Mirage invites viewers to reflect on their own feelings and desires; to dive deeper and question whether what you see on the surface is reality, or merely an illusion.
