“Surfacing dreams“ “Visage et rêves” or we can name it after the long term project in the shadow of lost dreams.

This Portfolio is about capturing portraits of young people while they are talking about their dreams, it gives them a different dimension when they are caught in the moment. How their faces light up, how their expressions reveal a little part of their character. The idea is not only visual, it’s also an effort to capture a pattern or a link between our dreams, how do we define it, do we really believe in them? Can you actually live it? Or does it have to be impossible to achieve?

Portfolio from the Visual Storytelling for Impact and Meaning workshop with Ed Kashi, November 2018.
