The book “at the end of the dream” is created over a time span of 12 years, from the authors 18th birthday until the end of his 20s. It documents the process of entering adulthood and the feelings of freedom that comes with this. To live through your twenties is in a way to enter an invincible state of endless possibilities where the world is in front of your feet. The series document youth, and the gravitation and longing towards sources of a higher connection to our human conditions and the core of our planet; nature. Always with a queer view of the surroundings.

The title is a reference to the feeling of turning a chapter in life, when the first decade of adulthood has passed and a new sense of calmness is planted. At the same time, it’s a hint at the global state of crisis that humanity has entered through our recklessness with our natural resources. The book can in this way become a double depiction of a decade; both at an individual level and at a greater framework where humanity took no real action for the consequences of our behavior. Both paths are at the verge of a metamorphose to enter into a new state.

Beyond the strong visual storytelling of the imagery, Grind have also invited the author Madeleine Schantz to interpret his work in a short story that opens the book.
