As random and "illogical" as they are, dreams always refer to the viewer's
hidden world.
Mandalas - ilustrations of dreams – are shortcuts to the
subconscious Self.

Tomasz Wieja is a photo illustrator. His photographs are bridges between
the subconscious and the fgurative.
They serve both as symbol and form.
The Author is strongly infuenced by traditions of surrealism
and psychoanalysis.


The Dreaming is the realm of both questions and answers.

Dog Years

His wide hands around my waist,
I’m assisted down a single step
Into the backyard.
My paws soaked and cold in grass.
I squat in pain, joints aflame,
Release my fluids.
Water parachutes from the gray.
My coat heavy and matted,
I’m assisted inside,
Wrapped in a towel by his wide hands.
My hair– sopping and tangled,
My collar jingles.
Watch me ice skate on kitchen tile,
Reaching the rug, my comfort zone.
I collapse.
Assured, I’m a good girl. Beautiful.
Wide hands rub my ears,
I lean into his scratch.
He walks. Don’t leave me just yet.
Too much pain to follow,
Old woman I am.
I try. My hips creak and crack.
My body sways, but fall again.
A rusty gate I am.
