Freud Dreams of Rome explores the longing for Rome which Freud felt as he worked on his seminal project The Interpretation of Dreams. Freud dreamt of visiting Rome four times before actually getting there. The book creates an uncanny atmosphere, as do the images, allowing the reader to take a dérive through Freud’s imagination. The images - introduced as ‘Freud’s holiday photographs of Rome’ - are rather strange. They show no people. They are oddly cropped. They reveal only impasses, dark courtyards, angles of buildings.
