Through 'Kaleidoscope,' Riera translates his moods, reflections, and daily life into a mesmerizing collection of 365 images, revealing the complexities of human existence. Each photo represents a convergence of experiences, memories, and emotions, accompanied by premeditated writings that provide insight into his spiritual and existential journey. This project also reflects Riera's ongoing dialogue with photography, as he delves into its influence on his creative practice and personal growth. 'Kaleidoscope' is not merely a collection of pictures but a rich symphony of reflections on life, death, ego, and the essence of being. It is an intimate exploration of self and surroundings, a transparent dialogue with the artistic medium that defines and motivates him. In looking back, Riera finds clarity for the way forward.
