“Wandering Dreams” by photographer Angela Bacon-Kidwell
American photographer Angela Bacon Kidwell () took photographs in 2005. Her whole series of “Wandering dreams” (“Traveling dreams”) is built on her own dreams and their symbols. At the same time, Angela does not disclose what these or other elements of images mean for her, allowing each viewer to interpret them in their own way.
My photos come from a lifelong obsessive study of how my subconscious gives rise to my dreams. During the day, I am well aware of my meetings with people, encounters with places and things. Mentally, I capture the details of the situations, the physical or emotional reactions that they cause. These fleeting associations are replayed in dreams. Random moments are combined into plots of dreams, rich in narration, with mature symbolism. I build scenery, use props, invite myself and models for natural intuitive performance. In fact, I'm trying to create dreams in reality.For me, this is about being in the moment of a planned vision. It is here that I am most associated with my work.
