Doppelganger 18/18 by Julie-de-Waroquier Doppelganger 18/18 by Julie-de-Waroquier
"Le syndrome de « l’ami imaginaire » est une névrose caractérisée par un dérèglement excessif de l’imagination. Fonctionnant comme mécanisme de défense face à une situation hostile, ce trouble de la personnalité se manifeste par la création d’un compagnon rassurant. Cet ami est une projection fictive, n’existant que dans l’esprit de la personne qui le crée : la vie intérieure est privilégiée, et le monde extérieur délaissé. Fréquents et considérés comme anodins durant l’enfance, les amis imaginaires peuvent perdurer jusqu’à l’âge adulte, révélant alors potentiellement un mal-être profond."

"The “imaginary friend” syndrome is an overactive imagination disorder. It consists in creating a reassuring mental companion in order to cope with a troubling situation. This friend is a fictional projection and only exists in the mind’s person: the inner life gets the upper hand on the external world. Frequent and considered as harmless during childhood, imaginary friends can last until adulthood, and may then reveal a deep sorrow."

It's actually a text written in French, and as DA is mostly for English speakers, it didn't seem suitable :) but here it is, with the translation below! www.facebook.com/122494317108/…

Even though each picture has its own charm, this little explanation allows us to appreciate the series and its value thoroughly. Now, after seeing it complete, I can say: the whole series is wonderful!! It has images that are truly captivating by the beauty and mystery they contain.. You did a magnificent job! :rose::hug:

Great job on the series! Did you use just one girl or twins as the models?

Thank you! There's just one girl, it seemed more logical with the meaning of the series :)

For some reason, this series reminds me of the anime Serial Experiments Lain. One of its themes is mental illness from the perspective of the person with the illness. That series and this one are very well done and sometimes unnerving. The anime was so unnerving that I quit watching it halfway through the series, but I stayed with this series to the end and it was worth it.
