Photograph

(dreams)
Seeing old or even unfamiliar pictures in your dream may be a reflection of how you remember certain parts of your life. These pictures may represent longing for a time that has passed. However, other interpretations can be made. Although this dream may be difficult to interpret, the dreamer may need to put significant amount of effort into its understanding. Some believe that since a photograph represents something real, it could represent a deception or distortion of some kind. Someone may be trying to sell something to you and is covering up the truth, or you may be doing the covering yourself. New Age thinking points out that dreaming of pictures means you have not learned a particular lesson in life. The dream may be calling attention to past events and reminding you that you are making the same errors all over again.

A generation ago, artists like Cindy Sherman and Jeff Wall were constructing photographic images at the crossroads of a variety of media, and in so doing initiating new, hybrid genres (the film still, for example, which inhabits a space between cinema and photography); today that legacy has been extended in at least two directions: toward an increasing mannerism of the hybrid photographic image as its own form (Taylor-Wood and Gregory Crewdson are exemplary here) and toward analogous experiments at the limits of other media such as film and projected-image work, where cinema meets sculpture or video (and here, too, Taylor-Wood is representative).
