“Sleep paralysis is an experience in which the individual becomes conscious and is left immobile in a state between being awake and asleep. The wakeful mind separates itself from the mobile functions of the sleeping body and the individual begins to experience horrific visual and auditory hallucinations – essentially having a nightmare while you’re awake. For most of my life, I have struggled with this repetitious and draining sleep condition. For individuals that have not been haunted by sleep paralysis, I aim to give them a visual taste of what lies within the in between terrifying realm of sleep and consciousness through my photographs.” Nicolas Bruno, 2016
