Throughout history, the dream has been the subject of scientific debates, philosophical, religious and cultural aspects about their nature and meanings. For Freud, dreams are linked to our unconscious desires, a relationship that is also present in our daily lives. After all, the dream left the field of the individual imagination and became a synonym for our desires and plans in the real world, whether personal or collective. For this edition of Prix Photo Alliance Française, the theme "Dreams” proposes an interpretation of the dream in all its senses. At a time when we seek to imagine the post-pandemic future, the dream represents a power of personal and social transformation. Whether through the representation of the dream state we are in during sleep or the expression of concrete desires and desires, the contest is an invitation to make our dreams come true through photography.
