The hour between night and dawn. The hour when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when dreams and nightmares are most real. It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fears, when ghost and demons are most powerful, the hour of the wolf is also the hour when most children are born.
Ingmar Bergman's Film HOUR OF THE WOLF
"All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream". Edgar Alan Poe
At times I see myself as a photographer who paints, like surrealist painters who painted with photographic precision, and developed techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself. I try to do the same with photography, to capture unnerving, illogical scenes, to create strange creatures from shadows, unexpected juxtapositions or conjure up dreamscapes.
