I remain still, dazed.
Somewhere between the vast sea
and the blue sky,
In the land of dreams.
Filled with questions.
Mystery sinking into my skin.
I have been keeping dream journals for many years. I have recurring dreams. There are dreams that reveal themselves only after a long time. Others, however, inform my waking life immediately. Like Carl Jung, I don’t believe dreams need to be interpreted; they are doing their work just by linking the known with the unknown.
In this series, I am re-enacting my dreams, this practice helps me discover their deeper meaning. To create these images, I use metaphors and symbols. I write poetry, sketch my visions, and then I capture them with my camera using toy and vintage lenses to create a blur reality.
