Reflections Within was created to combine two forms of expression and allow such collaboration to speak one language; the language of purposeful art. The combination of international photography and original prose opens up the hearts and minds of the observer. Beyond visual appeal, the words help to provoke thought, revisit experiences and emotions that have been suppressed or repressed. It presents images of people, things and places that go beyond the observers’ own world.
