Re-Creating the Magical World of Dreams

Dreams (or what many might categorize as nightmares) are inspiration for the wildly imaginative images created by photographer Tom Chambers.

Restless horses baring their teeth, inscrutable crows, writhing snakes held by young children all have entered Chambers’ mind during sleep. “I’ll have to wake up and write them down,” he said in a phone call from his Virginia home.

Chambers works out the composition of an imaginary scene in a drawing before setting out to photograph each component—background, sky, creatures, people—that will make up the composite photograph. The models include his daughter (until as a young teenager she demanded a modeling fee), his twin nephews, and neighbor children. “I like to use kids because there’s a sense of vulnerability,” he said. “These are like fairy tales gone awry.”
