The shadow sees him looking up almost with optimism or resolution, whereas the reality seems to be eyes that are empty except for a feeling of dislocation. At least that's what I see. Very thought provoking, I love this.

Beautiful portrait Ollie - It's as if he's speaking to the camera, wonderful connection with the viewer.

Excellent portrait, great expression.

I like the way you alternate between sweet childhood images and the deeply disturbing, and treat them both with the same degree of seriousness and respect. The shadow speaks of a strange, silent alter ego. It's as strong as the face, even stronger. And so different.
