I want to be…

a childhood’s dream

Rui Dias | a project with the students of DTK

About the Project

The exhibition “I want to be…” shows photographic works based on childhood dreams and wishes.
The project is a collaboration between the DTK students and photo teacher Rui Dias.

The art (and craft) of “little big” dreams is fun.

Freezing a childhood’s dream in funny frames was the challenge accepted by the DTK Photography students.The main focus was composition and the making of a dream in a studio setting.
Dreams were shared. This was a personal and collective project that brought us together.

Rui Dias | The teacher

“This exhibition was born from a challenge I launched to my photography students, last year and this year. The idea was to find out the childhood dream of all DTK students and teachers and photograph them, in a studio environment, recreating those dreams. And using only a 50mm lens.
Imagination, creativity and good humor were the essential ingredients.
The challenge was accepted, the dreams shared and now we are the ones to share the results. And I can’t be more proud.
The exhibition includes also the students final annual project.”
