Transcendent Country of the Mind

Transcendent Country of the Mind is a project exploring my encounters with alternative dimensions of reality and my perceptions of otherworldly signs around us. It tells the story of a world that lives at the back of our minds. In my early twenties, I experimented with LSD regularly and excessively, and eventually experienced an extended psychotic episode, which had serious consequences on my own life, but also profoundly changed the way I perceive the world and reality itself. During this time, I abandoned all my worldly possessions; I confronted the demons of Hell and was shown the wonders of Heaven; I travelled through time and space; I peeked behind the curtain of this dimension and - even today, having fully recovered - my understanding of reality has changed forever. These photographs represent this perspective and offer others similar glimpses to what I found behind the curtain.
