'The sleep of the beloved' was born as my diploma in 2010 at the university of applied arts Vienna and has become an ongoing long time project. Each picture of the sleep of the lovers is one 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.

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?

How might 'your beloved sleep' look like?
