Photographer Recreates His Dreams as Surreal Photographs

09 - ymgXm

Some people use dream journals to record and remember their imaginary nighttime escapades. Israel-based photographer Ronen Goldman uses photographs. Whenever he has a strange dream that he’d like to document, he goes out and recreates that dream as a surreal photograph. The project is titled “Surrealistic Pillow“.

Here’s what Goldman tells us about the project,

For the past six years I have been recreating my dreams through photos. Each photo takes weeks and even months of preparation from dreaming it, writing down the main elements, planning, shooting and post production.
I don’t always fully understaned the meaning of these images- much like dreams they sometimes reveal themselves only months after being created.

All elements of all the images were actually shot on location on the same day and combined together.
