Dreams are always associated in our sleep, and regardless of how much we tried to let go of it, we simply can’t. Everyone dreams, together with you and me- from the time we’re born until we get into our old age, dreams at all times be there.
Photographer Arthur Trees needed to know what dreams and nightmares of kids within the early 1960s seems like, so he asked kids in the late 60s and early 70s in the event that they remember their dreams and describe it. So, he staged the haunting dreams of those kids, photographed it and dubbed this project ‘Daymares’.
When Arthur was asked about his project, this is what he stated: “I was looking for mythological, archetypical, kind of nightmarish images. That kind of became my trademark for the next 20 years, that kind of surreal disturbing photography.”
