“Reflections” is a series of images that explore the subject of identity. I am presenting the collection in two parts. Part 1 looked at some of the questions surrounding the search for an image. In this second part, “Arrival”, past struggles are left behind as a true identity and character begin to emerge. This project was my second collaboration with friend and photographer Vilija, following on from the CB1 “Genesis” Photoshoot.

The instinctive need to define ourselves can sometimes lead to inner struggles as we journey through life. Ambitions, expectations, hopes, and fears create turbulence, throwing us one way then another as we try to find our place and win the respect and approval of others.
But in time we reach calmer waters, start to relax, and take time to reflect on who we really are. Our true identity begins to emerge and the way forward becomes clearer and simpler. The strength and integrity of our genuine selves shines through and radiates a pure, unique, and warm light.
