Few acts are more trusting than actually being able to sleep next to another person. Photographer Paul Schneggenburger explores this vulnerable act through “The Sleep of the Beloved” - a beautiful take on long exposure photography and intimacy not often seen between couples. The questions it attempts to answer - Is sleeping next to a lover a “nocturnal lover’s dance, maybe a kind of unaware performed tenderness, or does one turn their back on each other?” Is there a sharing of certain places or emotions, or “is there a conjunction with the other, with one’s self?” - are thought-provoking and strangely romantic.
Much like gazing upon the X-rays of a patient, this series makes me feel like an intruder in another person’s space. And yet, these exposures are both so tender and haunting that I find it difficult to look away.
