While You Were Sleeping...

For German photographer Paul Schneggenburger's series The Sleep of the Beloved, he took long-exposure photos of couples sleeping between the hours of midnight and 6am. He asks,
What happens to lovers while they are sleeping? Is it a sleeping just next to each other, each on his own, or is there a sharing of certain places or emotions? Is it a nocturnal lovers' dance, maybe a kind of unaware performed tenderness, or does one turn their back on each other?
 The resulting photographs are incredibly beautiful and somewhat haunting portraits of coupledom.
