PHANTASM

Even though Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator are all amazing applications that I couldn't live without, I wanted to try. I decided to approach this series of imagery from a fully hands on perspective. I started by interviewing a few friends of mine about recurring dreams they have had. I asked each person to handwrite their story for me. I then used my Holga lomography camera to photograph each person in their beds. Once the film was developed, I scanned the images and printed them on canvas paper. I used Acrylic paint to illustrate their dream environments over the portraits and finished the images by projecting their handwritten text onto the paintings and tracing each letter in paint. I love the texture and depth that this process created.
