The Dreamkeepers by Polixeni Papapetrou

The Dreamkeepers photography project by Polixeni Papapetrou explores an unknown filled with dreams, fears and hopes. Papapetrou created a space for transformation for the children as they transitioned from childhood to adolescence. This space is part fantasy and part reality.

Papapetrou’s photography practice has involved collaboration with her children and their friends for over a decade. The subjects in this photo project are her own children, aged 13 and 15. She became interested in reflecting upon the transition of one phase of life to another. In this project, Papapetrou used the technique of collapsing the life cycle into one body. It is both a representation of youth and the aged and a meditation on being itself.
