A few days ago I started to write and typewrite poems for the Dream Away series.
I started the series last year in the summer, a self-portrait project about flowers and dreams, symbolism, and escape from this reality, building safe worlds. I wanted to create the images, focusing more on the photography side, and I wasn’t thinking of making them photopoems. But it felt something was missing from this project like I wanted to share more, and really bring my vision to life. Later on, I had a lot of poems about this series, so I started to think about how can I integrate the poems.
Again, it is one of those projects, where… I don’t know, nobody is doing this, isn’t it a strange vision to combine the images with the poems. Isn’t it weird?!

A world is stolen, unnoticed,
When masquerades dictate the time,
Tragic and sad, wishing all the madness
Lots of love, Daciana
