My Life as a Dream

Like many photographers of my generation, I sometimes see things in black and white. It’s a feeling like living in a dream, or being inside an old movie. In the Surrealist tradition, I use scenes from my subconscious awareness of the passing time and fear of death. The images are connected by a feeling of nostalgic longing and melancholy, but also through a particular sense of light and shadow; texture and the graininess of old film. The subjects present themselves in ordinary circumstances, mostly while going about my normal daily life, and only call out to me occasionally, as if whispering or sometimes screaming from the back of my mind. My goal is to follow an irrational thread and catch a glimpse of my life as a dream.
