“I experienced the particular shooting as it never really happened, like I was not the one taking the pictures. I chose to overexpose the settings of my camera and let the light hide the details of the persons captured, as details are seldom there in my dreams..”.
Just like the definition of imagery involves expressive images or icons or representative images, I felt that I was not capturing the people walking there but something more bright than their bodies; maybe their souls, their aura. The process involved meditation prior to the shooting with eyes shut for a certain period of time. ”A completely new journey for me as a photographer, a purely new experience linked with controversial feelings as I could visualize myself photographing at the specific location prior to the shooting (while I had my eyes shut) but then during the shooting I felt that the images were captured by someone else..The title given fits perfectly what I experienced with regards to this project…Were these people a product of my imagination? Were they really there?..”
