Summary: With this collection of photographs, interspersed with an anthology of evocative quotations about sleep and dreaming, Scianna takes us and himself on a fascinating journey inside a dimension of life that is natural and mysterious, necessary and disturbing, everyday and universal. Often the camera freezes movement, isolating a single moment in the endless flux of reality; here, on the contrary, the stillness of the image is of its essence. Through the mystery of sleep, life itself, like the photographic image, becomes static, as if in suspense.
