THE SLEEP OF THE BELOVED

95 images, taken 2010 - now

What happens to lovers while they are sleeping?
Is it a sleeping just next to each other, each on his own, or is there a
sharing of certain places or emotions? Is it a nocturnal lover’s dance, maybe a
kind of unaware performed tenderness, or does one turn the back on each other?
Is there a conjunction with the other, with one’s self?

Each picture of the sleep of the lovers is one analog long exposure.

The exposing time is 6 hours, from midnight until 6 am.

The room with the bed is in my studio, I am at no time of the exposure inside the room myself.

I just light the candles, set up the stage.
