Slideshow of Portraits from 2009

Here is a slideshow of some of the Soul Portraits that I have done in 2009. It continues to feel like quite a privileged journey to do this type of work.
One of the things that has stood out for me over the past year or so is an increased awareness of the influence of the spirit of the land, of place upon the persons portrait. For example there are distinctive patterns that seem to relate to the mountainous landscape and night sky of people who come from Norway.
Sometimes you can see the influence of a group soul/nationality upon a persons individual soul. For example people from India whose portraits I have done seem to have beautiful flower patterns as a characteristic of their portrait, and this seems to be retained even if they are no longer living in India or even Indian nationals.
I think in order to draw any more concrete conclusions about this I would need to do larger numbers of a single group from a particular place or culture, but nevertheless I thought that it was worth mentioning as it is something I have noticed this year in particular.
