Is this world real? Or is it just all in my head? What if what in my head is all that is true? Or maybe all of it, me, you, this world, is just a dream of a butterfly. Or maybe the world of such a butterfly and our world are intertwined. We also see other versions of ourselves in our deep subconsciousness. There, our pains are perhaps lesser, our lives are perhaps happier. Or maybe not. So most people just go on with their so-called real lives. But we, the dreamers, continue to explore those worlds. In the end, we may not find the truth but certainly something strange and beautiful.

Michael Nguyen is a photo artist and documentary photographer living near Munich. “Everywhere I go, my eyes and senses are in motion. With my camera I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. Most of the time, I focus on small, ordinary things but through the subjective lens, I give them new perspectives, a new soul.”
