CURATED PHOTOS | June 20, 2016 | ABIGAIL CRONE, Guest Curator

I was driving downtown with my husband a few days ago, I told him how sometimes I meet people in dreams and we become the closest of friends; they feel so real. Then I wake up, and they’re gone. It leaves me feeling unbelievably sad; it’s like I’ve actually lost someone. He told me about how he once saved an entire town in a dream. He said they could only be saved if he woke up. He did, and when he went back to sleep, the town was there again, and everyone was fine. He had saved them.

These surreal experiences and feelings fill me completely only to fade back into my subconscious with my first cup of coffee. But they drift back to me in songs and photos where everything has come together just so, and created portals back to them. This week I’ve chosen a few portals back to those dreams, enjoy, and I hope they can bring a bit of your dreams back to you as well.

Next week Ruby Falls will be curating a selection of pinhole photos, submit your pinhole photographs here!

Michael Behlen

Michael Behlen is a photography enthusiast from Fresno, CA. He works in finance and spends his free time shooting instant film and seeing live music, usually a combination of the two. He has self- published two Polaroid photobooks--“Searching for Stillness, Vol. 1” and “I Was a Pioneer,” literally a boxed set of his instant film work. He exhibited a variety of his photos at Raizana Teas, a Fresno tea room and health food store; his work there, “Polaroid Prints of Landscapes and Strangers,” was up for viewing during the months of June and July, 2014. He has been published, been interviewed, and been reviewed in a quantity of magazines, from” F-Stop” and “ToneLit” to “The Film Shooter’s Collective.” He loves the magic sensuality of instant film: its saturated, surreal colors; the unpredictability of the medium; it’s addictive qualities as you watch it develop. Behlen is the founder and Publisher of “Pryme Magazine.” You can see his work here:
