The thematic similarities are both asian females using a phone for different purposes. One is utilitarian and the other is vanity.

This image connects with the other images in this project because he’s a sailor, and the other people in the previous images came from across the sea.

Judging by his smug grin and stature you can see his charisma radiating from every orpheus of his manifesto.
