Helene Desplechin's photography captures the complex nature of humans. The face people show the world is always different from the face they show their friends, not to mention very different from the face they see when they look in the mirror. Helene Desplechin's broken reflections manage to embody these fractured selves that reside in one body.

Based in Spain, Helene Desplechin uses transparent materials such as water and glass to evoke emotions. Desplechin says, "My inspiration is simple curiosity, constant observation, and astonishment by what surrounds me. A part of it is willingness to enjoy every part of it. Everyday life, is what inspires me. And that fundamental need, that I was born with, to create and to share with others my emotions."
