  4. These photographs are so important to the photographer because they are things he has seen and experienced from his worst nightmares while struggling with sleep paralysis.

    Hopefully, while dealing with this creepy disorder, it can help him overcome his fears and work towards getting better.

    I imagine the photographer experiences what he sees, tries to remember it and photograph it to recreate what he saw.

    I could turn one of my nightmares into a photograph, but I’d rather not in all honesty. Some of them are too real.
