Youth in Bloom
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” - Prospero, The Tempest, William Shakespeare
Doctors, art therapists, and Feng Shui experts agree that images have power to influence development and shape the way we think. When my son Eli was born, I was so excited! I wanted to give him the best.
I created this series with the belief that by surrounding him with symbolic images of daring adventures, where he is the hero, he would be inspired to take courageous action in real life, as he grows up.
Influenced by the Little Nemo in Slumberland comic by Winsor McCay, created in 1905, I made these photomontages dreamlike in nature. I used photos of Eli when he was just 3 months old to create these.
