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 lovers’ 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 beloved” is one long-time exposure. The exposing time is 6 hours, from midnight until 6 am. The room with the bed is in my studio apartment, I am at no time of the exposure inside the room myself. I just light the candles, set up the stage.

If you want a picture of “Your beloved sleep”, you can take part!
