Transcendent Country of the Mind

  • Photographer
    Sari Soininen, United Kingdom

Transcendent Country of the Mind is a project exploring my encounters with alternative dimensions of reality and perceptions of otherworldly signs around us. It tells the story of a world that lives at the back of our minds.

In my early twenties, I experimented with LSD regularly and excessively and eventually experienced an extended psychotic episode, which had serious consequences on my life but also profoundly changed the way I perceive the world and reality itself. These photographs represent this perspective and offer others similar glimpses to what I found behind the curtain of reality.
