Angela Bacon-Kidwell’s series “Traveling Dream” was named the grand prize winner of the Connect 2011 Slide Show Contest at the Palm Springs Photo Festival on March 31.
Bacon-Kidwell says she uses her dreams as inspiration for images she creates with the help of sets she constructs, props and models. She explains the series by saying that as she observes her encounters throughout her day, “I mentally record the details of these situations, and these fleeting associations replay themselves in my dreams. The random moments combine to form sleep stories that are rich narratives, ripe with symbolism.” She adds, “In essence, I attempt to create a waking dream.”
