Sure! For the past four years I have been working on something I called “The Surrealistic Pillow Project” – basically, reconstructing dreams I have during this period of time, into visual Creations. The resulting images conveys happiness, sadness, exhilaration or sheer paranoia – as Dreams often do. All photos are created at one location and in one session, this in order for all the lighting to be believable and realistic even when the situation is not.
I dream something and then start thinking of ways in which I can realize that image or feel technically. It can take me months to figure out how things should be lit, times of day and what is needed to pull off the shot.
Where do you find inspiration and why you like photography?
I find inspiration in all arts, music, painting, dance and human behavior. I love photography for its ability to convey a universal message using the language of sight and perception. I also like how our brain tells us that what we see must be real if it is optically correct- and then use that fact to create my message.
If you want to create a piece of art don’t be afraid of failure, there is none.
