To strengthen creativity, one must continuously find new ways to be inspired. Sweet Dreams is my newest photography series that is inspired by nightmares. I am a person who dreams every night, and with that, remembers almost every dream vividly. I find dreams and nightmares to be fascinating, how our subconscious minds imagine different events, scenarios, thoughts or stories and how the impossible can become possible with the power of a thought.
Sweet Dreams, jumps from dream to dream, as the view sleeps throughout the night, waking up to think what does this mean? In the morning, can speculate what our night’s dreams truly mean, but the fascinating thing about dreams is that we will never know for sure. This series has no overall meaning, but instead is left up to the viewer to decide what this dream is telling that specific person.
My process for this series was quit different than my pervious series, instead of focusing on telling a story, I instead focused on the various stories our subconscious makes for us. Dreams have no definite meaning, simply lingering questions of what does this mean. They jump from one story to the next sometimes with transitions, sometimes without and when we wake in the morning all we are left with is asking ourselves how does this relate to my life?
