Peu importe les règles qui régissent nos heures d’éveil, nos rêves les défient. Nous nous réveillons en nous demandant ce que tout cela peut bien signifier. Comment avons-nous pu voler? Pourquoi étions-nous sur cette montagne? Comment avons-nous pu être si courageux?

Nos rêves nous confrontent à notre ignorance, à ce que nous n’avons pas accompli ou pas compris. Certains d’entre nous les ignorent, continuant leur vie comme si les rêves n’avaient pas d’importance. Et certains d’entre nous y croient, reconnaissant dans ces images des signes que nous devrions changer quelque chose, aller plus loin, voir au-delà.

Nos explorateurs sont unis dans leur volonté de ne rien tenir pour acquis et de tester les limites. Ils explorent des croyances trop souvent confondues avec des connaissances et révèlent des couches sous-jacentes essentielles, nous invitant à y poser un regard neuf. Ils s’aventurent dans des espaces sauvages comme personne ne l’a jamais fait, en photographiant et en documentant, attirant notre attention sur tout ce qui pourrait nous échapper. Dans leurs pages, c’est le monde qui s’ouvre.
