    These are all essentially the same photograph. Which might be the point?

    Certainly hammering on the same thing over and over makes it clear that this is a conscious idea, not a mistake.

    How are these the "essentially the same photograph?" They all look different and are interesting, technically well executed, etc...Just wondering what you are seeing that looks all the same to you?

    They all have a single primary form placed at the same location in the frame, sometimes horizontally flipped, and a secondary form placed at the same level in the frame but placed in one place or another horizontally, all on a background that is either blank or ignorable.

    Some are more alike than others.

    It would probably be more accurate to say that there is a very strong graphical theme connecting the images. That's kind of sleist's deal, so it's not a surprise.
