Welcome to my nightmare
Just before going to bed I often spend some time looking at Victorian photos of people who have long been dead. Afterwards it is not unusual for me to dream about them and sometimes a dream will turn into a nightmare. When I try to wake up from the nightmare I feel like something is sitting on my chest and I cannot move (this sleep paralysis can last for several minutes). I can never remember details of these dreams and have used a fuzzy background in the collage to represent this. The woman's face is a reverse copy of a painted tintype in my collection. It sits in my display cabinet so I see her everyday.
