New York, I dreamt

I participated in the workshop with David Alan Harvey in New York. This essay was made then in September of 2009. I had dreamt of going to New York because I heard there were many opportunities for people with dreams to succeed. So when I visited there I was very excited to be there. I was very curious that what makes people dream to go there. I was very fascinated by them. I spent over 10 hours each day taking pictures. This portfolio is my impression and reflection about the people and the city of New York.
Some of you may know I have published a book, “island”, which is also shown in BURN (e-magazine and book). This portfolio reflects and gives insight into the relationships between you, me and the city as does “island”. “island” was taken at my hometown, but this portfolio, 'New York, I dreamt' was taken in what was for me a strange city. After this trip I have traveled other cities all over the world until 2012. The results of trips of seven cities have evolved to publish my second book, 'The Seventh Sense'.
