One to watch: Paul Schneggenburger

Not only does he have possibly the coolest surname ever, but he’s also one hell of a photographer; Schneggenburger’s photo series, ‘The Sleep of the Beloved’ explores the relationship of lovers whilst they sleep over a six hour period. That’s some seriously long exposure ! And yes I know it sounds creepy, especially since the bed where the lovers sleep is in the photographer’s studio apartment but supposedly Schneggenburger is never actually present in the room….

Despite making you feel like you’re a peeping tom spying through a keyhole, the photographs are beautifully haunting and make the couples look like ghostly ballerinas. If only I looked this elegant sleeping….
