Looking Glass Self

The Looking Glass Self, a three-part sociological theory developed by Charles Horton Cooley.

Part I: We imagine how we appear to others.

Part II: We interpret the reactions of others to our appearance.

Part III: We develop a self-concept.

This series looks at the different identities we wear depending on where we are, what we’re doing, and with whom we’re doing it. My subjects assume multiple identities and, within each frame, present these artificial selves as their borrowed faces to the world.
