'The Shape of Dreams' 2013-2017

The form of formlessness
The shape of dreams


42 images in the series
© Marcus Bunyan

 


My most complex and enigmatic sequence to date.

Shot in Japan, all of the images come from two 1950s photography albums, one of which has a large drawing of a USAF bomber on it's cover. The images were almost lost they were so dirty, scratched and deterioryated. It has taken me four long years to scan, digitally clean and restore the images, heightening the colour already present in the original photographs.

Sometimes the work flowed, sometimes it was like pulling teeth. Many times I nearly gave up, asking myself why I was spending my life cleaning dirt and scratches from these images. The only answer is... that I wanted to use these images so that they told a different story.

Then to sequence the work in such a way that there is an enigmatic quality, a mystery in that narrative journey. Part auteur, part cinema - a poem to the uncertainty of human dreams.
