True Fakes is a photo series based on a collection of imitation gems. By enlarging the plastic and glass gems on a scale of 12/1, the details of wear and tear become visible. The series contains closeups of both the tops and the down sides of the gems, revealing the damaged and oxidized metal foil that is now failing to reflect the light. Some of the gems almost begin to resemble rough stones, as if they are returning to their  fictitious  original state.
