LUCID

DREAMING

I have a strong fascination with the

night and the city. I am not certain

where this fascination originated,

but I think it likely developed out of

the films, comics, video games

and other media I experienced

through my childhood in the 1980’s.

 

I wanted to experience these kinds

of places and scenarios, so I used the camera as an excuse and went out

searching. I quickly became

disillusioned with the realization

that what I sought to experience

could only exist in the photographs

I made, but simultaneously became

liberated as I found I could use the

camera to construct any kind of

fictional experience I wanted.

 

The resulting photographs document

my physical experiences and simultaneously create a supposition

for fictional places and experiences

I could never actually live.
