Meredith Andrews Captures Fresh Faces for ‘Sleep/Wake'

 - May 10, 2009   Updated: Aug 3 2011
Meredith Andrews' 'Sleep/Wake' is a brilliant photo set that captures people as they're just waking up. I see a lot of myself in these images, from the woman's wild hair in the first image to the shirtless man's squinted eyes and crunched-up face in the third image.

Meredith Andrews' 'Sleep/Wake' is a delicious look at ourselves when we're least ready to be presented to the world. Enjoy some other unusual photography series below.

Implications - In a world obsessed with keeping up appearances and a photography industry dominated by models, these photos of normal, everyday people in their most vulnerable and exposed state comes as a breath of fresh air. Average people can finally enjoy the spotlight free of make-up and editing, creating a positive brand image image and encouraging acceptance.
