Sleeping Sister


The sleep pictures occupy a surprising place within this oeuvre. Here the photographer has observed herself over the course of a night. Hours pass, and the camera, set up calmly with opened shutter, gradually captures and stores the impressions of the darkness. Only as dawn arrives does this intimate view end – the day begins. Left behind are calm and peaceful photographs revealing the boundary between closeness and distance, between day and dream. Yet this silent witness is unable to record the dreams of the young sleeper.
