“Invisible connection is stronger than visible. To arrive at the basic structure of things we must go into their darkness.” – Heraclitus
“Only what we extract from the obscurity within truly belongs to us.” – Proust
We dream in images. Images are at the most basic level of our true psychic reality. Our dreams are the metaphorical pictures of our individual realities. I believe that through them we can forge a deeper connection between ourselves and the world. By uniting dream and reality we can produce an art that will resonate and in the process learn something about ourselves and others. I photograph things not as I ‘see’ them but rather as I might have ‘dreamt’ them.
The way I’ve put it together in my head is that you have the moon moving across the sky, looking in our windows and seeing our dreams. The “Nocturnes” are what she sees.
