Photography | Edition of 3 | 100 x 66.6cm
Framed in an American Box Frame (Dark Brown Wood)

Despite over 150 years of psychology, the unconscious remains as vague and powerful as the gods it emancipated itself from. As a reservoir of our past experiences, it stores urges and feelings that we rationally have no access to. However some images can open these doors, trigger emotions and unlock memories. This is what I am looking for.
