The influx of sixties nostalgia is nothing new in today's photography, but the Romy Maxime Lucid Dreaming series takes time travelling a step further. Maxime has adopted the use of infrared film, most often used in military service, to bring out the more curious candy-colored tones featured here. The series focuses on musicians in the artist's home city of Berlin. According to the artist, the idea was born "out of nostalgia, a love for classic art films and the style and colors of photographs from the 1960s."

In large part due to the coloring and composition, Maxime's photos have a fairylike quality, another artistic element driven by nostalgia that has risen in popularity in the art world.

As the title suggests, the Romy Maxime Lucid Dreaming series can be described as serene, calm, silent and dreamy – all qualities that drive Maxime both in her work and in her life as a yoga and meditation enthusiast.
