Good Night.

I’ve been meaning to post about Robert Knight’s photos for a long time now because they are ghostly and fantastic and utterly strange. For his series “Sleepless,” the Hamilton College professor/artist took long-exposure photographs of people tossing and turning in their beds. The project was inspired by his own issues with insomnia (which is something I can relate to in a very big, very unfortunate way). The result is a cluster of images that capture the restless movement of a body in a bed while obscuring all identifying features of the subject. I find it creepy, touchingly intimate, and oddly beautiful.

You can read more about “Sleepless,” which also includes videos and installations called “sleep boxes,” at Knight’s website.
