Edith Maybin won Free Range 2006 Photographer of the Year and continues to create captivating imagery through her art. The artist received an MA from the Swansea Institute of Art and has her work featured as permanent additions in many renown art galleries including the Sir Elton John Photography Collection, The National Portrait Gallery and the National Museum of Wales.

This series of photos is from Maybin's project titled 'The Conversion Project' and features imagery surrounding the sensation one feels while in the limbo between awake and dreaming. The photographs center around a young girl (Maybin's daughter) who appears to be on the verge of waking up in a mirrored pink room. Images of horse legs infuses the collection with an imaginative sense of ambiguity, perhaps indicating the things that the child is dreaming of.
