Paul Schneggenburger's Sleep Portraits

October 24, 2013


In these fascinating time-lapse photos, Austrian photographer Paul Schneggenburger captures lovers 'dancing' as they sleep. He began project this project at his University back in 2010, and since then, more than 80 couples and families have volunteered to be photographed during their sleep in a black bed in Paul's candle-lit studio apartment. While they slumber, the camera hangs above bed and shoots ONE exposure for over six hours.
