By the end of last year I had to start taking pictures for my school final project and choose to attempt a similar dreamy feel. That’s how I started the series “portraits of dreams and thoughts”. It’s a series of photos I paired with text from different authors that show some of my dreams and thoughts.
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, rounded with a little sleep”.
William Shakesepeare, The Tempest
"I exist. It’s sweet, so sweet, so slow. And light: you’d think it floated all by itself. It stirs. It brushes by me, melts and vanishes. Gently,gently.
Jean-Paul Sartre- Nausea
“Existence is not something which lets itself be thought of form a distance; it must invade you suddenly, master you, weigh heavily on your heart like a great motionless beast - or else there is nothing at all.”
Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea
"To know nothing about yourself is to live. To know yourself badly is to think."
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
"Someday, somewhere - anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life."
