All the pieces in this series are digital photo collages made using photoshop. I originally created this series knowing that clouds would be in every image, but later the idea that the images could represent the hazy, cloudy, afterimage of dreams came to me and I stuck with it. I also tried to make each image portray an emotional distance similar to the emotional distance we have with our dreams.
