Sophie Calle

The sleepers
  • Inviting people into her bed(room) and then photographing them as they sleep blurs the boundaries of public and private. The bedroom is supposedly the most private place. She is inviting people into her private place.
  • Sleep is your most vulnerable state, yet she invites people to sleep while she observes. The photographs and texts are a portrait of that moment spent with these people, she is the subject but she is never present in the photographs.
