Delving in between genres of work, throughout this project Sarah-Jane Firth has closely analysed the way thoughts and emotions can be portrayed when dreaming. Through primary research she has meticulously chosen examples of dreams from others to exemplify emotions using conceptual portraiture. This project exhibits the idea of the unknown within a dream, leaving the viewer with an obstruction between audience and subject, much like our memories with the attempts of remembering people who have appeared in a dream after we are awake. The face of the subject in the images not fully on show creating the idea of the stranger some rarely remember when awaking, producing a connection between viewer and subject in a way which the feel of unease draws you in because of the unknown.
