Photos Show You Are Your Own Best Friend (And Worst Enemy)

Photographer Alli Carroll has created a series of photos where she appears as her own counterpart in some type of domestic or routine scene. She says, “This series is based off the idea that you are your own best friend. In these photographs I have duplicated myself to show the relationship I have with myself in a literal sense. I want to show the ups and downs that are in every relationship to show the love and anger I have for myself.”

These photos reveal the ways in which we comfort ourselves, challenge ourselves, fight with ourselves and allow ourselves to maintain the status quo. They’re a sort of reflection on both the idea of our inner child and our higher selves – which, for all I know, might very well be the same thing. Enjoy:
