Dream by Sergey Varaksin

Issue 31

This series of the presented photos is called "Dream". It was created after reading the eleventh lecture, "Dream Work", from Sigmund Freud's book A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis in which he says that "thanks to overlaying against each other separate condensed units there is, as a rule, not clear, indistinct picture, like that which turns out if on one photographic plate to make some pictures".

With this series, I hope to transfer the feeling of fragility and unreliability surrounding us in dream of the world.

This series was realized on a Holga camera, which allowed the making of repeated and imposing photographs. The chamber moved after each pressing the trigger button that the effect of trembling, alarm and uncertainty was gained.

Sergey Varaksin is a Petrozavodsk, Russia based artist.
