Renee Revah, photographic installation “Ocean of dreams”

— Kontakeika


Diving into the water looks like a dip into subconscious memories.

Each immersion in the wet embrace resembles a joint with the mother,

the feminine flow of life, the primitive feelings that unite us with the qualities of our soul.

When the soul speaks it uses dreams, the image of a world that, even though it does not look real, is in fact our most authentic self.

And when we are really lost in the oceans of our dreams, then we rediscover the birth legends, the water in its native power, the water that makes us live beyond death, that water that unites everything.

There, at the bottom, we hear again the demands we forgot growing up.

The water has kept them safe, cared for them and returns them to us alive and intact.


Renée Revah was born in Athens, Greece. She studied to be an actress and at the same time attended singing, dance, stage lighting and drawing lessons. She studied photography and since 2001 has been working as a professional photographer. Her love for theatre has influenced the approach to photography every step of the way. As a result, her tendency is to direct images and to perceive the world around us as part of a performance on stage. Her photographs have appeared in magazines and books and she has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo photographic exhibitions. The photographic work under the sea represents an impermeable bond. The relation between light and shadow. The pareidolia effect that the sea bed creates. The way the image penetrates the subconscious.
