Photographer Julien Mauve Explores Where Dreams And Reality Meet

Words

In the series ‘Headland of Dreams’, French photographer Julien Mauve captured dark melancholic images exploring the realm where dreams and reality intersect. From sombre shots of natural landscapes to eerie photos of figures in the dark, his images evoke a feeling of otherworldliness. On the inspiration behind the series, Mauve says, “This project is based on a text called ‘Promontorium somnii’ written by Victor Hugo in 1863 and deals with the continuum between real and dream. Hugo talks about our need to find something within ourselves than can help us sail through the remains of dreams and the will-of-the-wisps of illusion.” We’ve featured his work previously.
