[Intimate Slumber]…”Unmade Beds” by Valeria H

This collection of photographs by Valeria H are really striking to me. They capture the still quality of unmade beds – which I think is really intimate…

If you think about it, beds are a really poignant part of life. We regenerate in them (yay, sleep!), we seek them out when times are rough (how many people have cried themselves to sleep?), we nurture relationships in them (I throughly enjoy watching movies with my best friend or my sister in bed), we learn in them (dreams can tell you things if you pay attention), and of course we create life in them (literally, I mean…). Beds exhibit a vulnerable quality to me and I think these photos capture that.

They also remind me Todd Hido’s “Homes At Night” series I featured awhile back. I’m so drawn to images that capture mankind at it’s most bare – these are great pieces of work.
