English version | In the Land of Dreams

 

Ibormeith. Caer Ibormeith, the goddess of the Land of Dreams. Says the Irish mythology that the Dreamland deity appeared in the dreams of Óengus, god of love, youth, summer and poetic inspiration, but whenever he tried to touch Caer, the woman would disappear.

Every other Samhain(the festival that determines the end of harvests and the beginning of winter), Ibormeith appeared in her human form
for just one day, from sunset onward. Then she would become a swan, before returning to human silhouette in the next Samhain. The next pages pay homage to the goddess, the land of dreams and all dream figures that inhabit it. Here, you don't need to wait until the end of summer to see the picture of Caer in the flesh, nor visit that surreal realm where she lives full time. Art direction and photography by Alessandro Esposito. Styling by Pablo Patanè.
