Sleeps

Arya Tabandehpoor

In the beginning of this project I took photos from the place of sleeping and its environs. After a few photos I shifted my concentration to the position of sleeping. I had no idea of high time exposure in color film and digital camera. Using Camera remote control and time lapse I found the sleep time of the individuals for photo exposure. I regulated light by a warmer candle. After setting the camera and digital declencheur I left the scene. Individuals used to activate the shutter and photos were taken in my absence. The photos were quite different from what I saw in reality.  Such a change was a big factor in pushing me forward to continue. I was very eager to see what was real and what was registered in the photo.
