Projections Of My Childhood Fears

The Nameless Dread- taken from Wilfred Bion’s psychoanalytical term- is an attempt to visually approach the dreadful feeling of emptiness and non-understandable anxiety, through a fictional and intellectual prism. While everyone remembers their childhood fears, it is not easy to understand this nameless dread that follows us in adulthood. By seeing the human mind as a cave swarming with odd beings, symbols and strange objects, most of them unconscious and unilluminated, my photographs are used as a visual representation of the journey into the unknowable parts of consciousness and as projections of all the fears I might have not been able to conceptualize as a child. The entry into the cave is a re-entry into the womb of the Mother, a place where thoughts go when they are forgotten.
