"Sleepwalking" is an intriguing exploration of subconscious artistry captured through photography. It delves into the surreal landscapes of dreams, nightmares, and fleeting moments, inviting readers to question the boundaries between reality and imagination.


Limited to just 50 copies, this book offers a unique glimpse into the hidden depths of the photographic subconscious.

Opening text from the book

“I used to sleepwalk quite often when I was growing up. I have a faint memory, about how I dreamed a monster towards a cliff was chasing me, and when I woke up from the nightmare, I found myself hanging from the edge of the bunk bed in my pajamas. I had several episodes where I would get out of bed and walk into the kitchen in the middle of the night, singing loudly as I opened cabinets and searched for something. I have now stopped sleepwalking (to my knowledge), but I still have my nightmares and dreams like everyone else. However, as a photographer, I have developed a habit that I can't quite explain but bears a resemblance to sleepwalking. I tend to pause and grab my phone to capture a photo of something that caught my interest, whether it's the interesting play of light or the way something was positioned that gave it a more abstract angle. But with this habit comes a downside, similar to sleepwalking. I often forget that I have taken these photos, just like how a sleepwalker may not remember their actions. I'll scroll through my camera roll and find photos that I have no recollection of taking, almost as if they were taken by someone else. It's a strange feeling like I am both the photographer and the viewer at the same time. Perhaps it's the same part of my brain that triggers my sleepwalking that causes me to take these photos without fully registering them in my memory. Or maybe it's just the subconscious desire to capture fleeting moments before they disappear into the abyss of forgetfulness. Whatever the reason, I find myself drawn to this habit, just like I was once drawn to the strange allure of sleepwalking. It's a reminder that our minds have a way of working in mysterious ways, both during our waking and sleeping moments.”
