about "Dreaming in the forest"

I grew up near the seaside. Daily I went to the forest to walk my dog. The forest was different everyday. The atmosphere changed with the weather conditions, the light, the wind, the rain and also with my moods. The forest could change from spooky to magic, peaceful, lonely, scary, tranquil, anything was possible.

For years I've been trying to capture these atmospheres of a forest. By using a special technique details dissapear and one reaches the atmosphere of the forest. That's why this serie is called "Dreaming in the forest". It doesn't matter where it is or when the photo was taken. Just go and look for your own forest, dream away and come down to yourself.
