This is a series of 14 photos called, My Nightmares. Each of the individual photos are untitled. They were all takes with a point and shoot digital camera and none of them has been altered in any way. They were taken at night in a specially lit room that had one large mirror mounted on one wall. For each of the photos, I aimed the camera at my reflection in the mirror and moved the camera very fast. I did this in order to manipulate the light as it reflected off on me, and the mirror. My intent was to create images that symbolically represent the ephemeral nature of my dreams, which are seldom understood.
