These examples of sleep photography depict humans in an extremely vulnerable state. Whether they were meant as an artistic expression, or an eye-catching print advertising campaign, slumberous captures are becoming increasingly popular.
Some of these photographic series use long-exposure techniques to create a blurry effect, while others require creative ladder use to get the perfect shot. On the artistic end of things, one of these trends involves an award winning actress in a glass box as a part of an exhibit. These are often candid and realistic images of real people asleep.
On the other hand, many of these sleep photography finds are marketing campaigns. Sleeping Beauty editorials are prevalent, but few feature models who feign sleep in every shot. Other ads promote libraries, mattresses and hotels. Sleeping infants are also commonly used to amp up the adorable factor.
