You seem to be getting plenty of responses to shots like “Sleeping” and the others, so I thought I would mention some other things. First, this photo – what makes it interesting for me is not what most of your viewers engage with. For me there are three major things that make this resonate.
First, it is the model’s suspension in mid-spin. He is floating in exactly the way I often spin in the dreaming. (I don’t know why, but it seems to be a transitional move between floating and flying, and I often do a backward flip like this in slow motion -- it helps make the dream lucid.) The second is the parallelism of the man’s ribs and the marks on the ground. It’s not clear to me what they are, but in the dreaming the setting is parallel with the body (environment and self are the same, though they are separate at the same time). The man’s hair and his body are also parallel (and hair is very important in the dream world). Finally, the foggy light – that is how the dreaming is illuminated – with particles of light literally making up the air. Details are hazy (actually they do not quite exist) until you willfully perceive them into being.
The other piece I found interesting was your “Relationship 1,” which reminded me of Aboriginal X-ray paintings and representations of the Wandjina, who are figures from the Dreamtime. The elongated figures are reminiscent of Wandjina and Mimi spirits. It’s almost as if you have experienced them firsthand. (Actually, given the mystical and hallucinatory themes in your drawings and photography, I would not be surprised if you had had such experiences directly.)
