Austrian photographer Paul Schneggenburger‘s university thesis project three years back, has since become an ongoing one. The Sleep of the Beloved is a series of photographs taken as one long-time exposure, from midnight to 6am, of lovers sleeping together. Schneggenburger sets up a bed in his studio apartment as a stage, complete with candlelight, but removes himself from the space as the couples sleep. The results are somewhat ghostlike, with a moody balletic quality. Quite nice, I think. If you’re interested in having you and your significant other photographed while sleeping together, there’s a contact on Schneggenburger’s website.
