Daydreamers: Photographer Captures the Sparkle of People Envisioning Happiness (PHOTOS)

Alexandra Sandu‘s blog describes her as a “photographer, storyteller and authorized daydreamer.”

The Bucharest-based artist says she spent her childhood “mostly reading, watching films and dreaming away.”

As an authorized daydreamer — and with the happiness that accompanies daydreaming on her mind, Sandu started a project in 2009, “Daydreamers,” in which she asked people to close their eyes and dream of something beautiful — and then she took their photos, which she hopes “make you smile and feel good about life.”

Sandu has a goal of shooting 1,000 dreamers, so if you find yourself in Romania, drop her a line at to be included in the project.

In the meantime, take a look at some of her Daydreamers — and smile and feel good. It’s that easy.
