Surreal Photography By Nicolas Bruno Inspired By His Nightmares
Nicolas Bruno suffers from sleep paralysis, a state in which he’s unable to move and is haunted by nightmarish visions. “I have experienced bone chilling hallucinations and extreme terror during these dreams,” he says. “Faceless silhouetted figures, embraces from shadow-like hands, warping of reality around me – all while completely paralyzed.” Nicolas started recreating these terrifying hallucinations in his photos, overcoming his fear and discovering the creative power of conceptual photography.
Last year, 22-time Emmy award-winning reporter John Stofflet posted this news video he created for KING-TV in 2004, featuring Paul Smith and his artistic talents.
