the sleep of the beloved

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Yesterday afternoon I discovered this fascinating story  called "The Sleep of the Beloved" by Paul Schneggenburger, who photographed couples while they slept. I found these images hauntingly beautiful- from the fluid movement throughout the long exposure, to the different positions they slept in, to how some look like one combined person. I would love to know what they were dreaming about and if their movements had anything to do with their dreams...

I think dreams are so fascinating- the way you play can out stories and situations in your subconscious that might pertain to one random detail of something you saw or thought about during the day; how you might remember just a sliver of that dream even though if felt like hours when you were dreaming it; or when you wake up and for a split second you think your dream is real. I could go on for hours about dreams and your subconscious (Inception is one of my top 5 favorite movies because of this interest) but for now I'll leave you with these stunning images for you to contemplate for yourself what they were dreaming about.





4 happy notes:

  1. These are so fascinating! And cool. I like the first one the best. It almost looks like someone painted those, instead of it being a real life photograph, you know? I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing!
