Cakes and Road Trips IVAbout this photograph
In his DREAM WORLD series CAKES AND ROAD TRIPS, Anatol shows his inner conflict between the desperate urge for freedom and his longing for a home and some stability on the other hand. Anatol uses symbols like balloons standing for freedom and easiness, a caravan, the very symbol for his nomadic, restless life...he then breaks those symbols by tying the balloons so they cannot really break free and staging the caravan showing it obviously has not been moved for a while.

Of Romanian-French origin, Anatol grew up in a lot of different places and environments - due to his parentâ€˜s worldwide engagements, the family was constantly on the move.From his early childhood on, travelling into his colorful dream worlds has always been a way to escape from the high expectations and requirements his family imposed on him. His dream worlds became a very important reality - something he could take with him wherever he was forced to move. Or to put it in his words: I became aware of the magnitude and significance of distancing myself from the world as far as possible around the age of 8.With his art, Anatol found an instrument to open the curtains and show his dream worlds to a greater audience. THE DREAM SERIES is his first series in photography. Welcome to Anatolâ€˜s Worlds.
