Dreamalities

PrizeBook (series Only) / Fine Art
Entry Description

"Dreamalities" is a book published by KnowWare editions, and is composed of 63 photographs with unreleased texts (written in English and French). Between dreams and reality, I create pictures which look like they escaped from imagination, which disturb the categories of the material world. My approach is simply poetic; it raises questions about the world and the man who inhabits it: I'm looking for Meaning where our society wants us to see nonsense or vacuum.
