While Dreaming, 2011-

While Dreaming, a work in progress begun in 2011, rejects the mode of production in time-limited series that often gets imposed on artists. Presented in a custom-made box, this series is an attempt to give an image to dreams. The public is invited to contemplate at their own pace these photos conceived on the basis of a collection of personal and recounted dreams. Created by a printing process that alters the clarity of the visible information, the cyanotype prints reinforce the evocative aspect of the images and call on the viewers’ own memories.
