Falling Asleep by alltelleringet Falling Asleep by alltelleringet
This is a project I've been working on since November 2017 where I photographed the girl floating in water. The idea is to capture the feeling of falling into sleep, the feeling of falling out of control of the environment around you. I would love to hear your thought about it! What's the first and second thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

...I also made a BTS video for this one if you'd like to see how it came to life: youtu.be/f7HvnhIfNCA

I like the contrast between the warm light of the lamp and the cool moonlight. It emphasizes the transition between the two worlds.

However, I'm not sure if this sleep will be peaceful... the situation looks definitely out of control, as you wrote.
On the other hand, it also reminds me of this feeling when I'm halfway asleep and already started dreaming, but suddenly my body remembers that I'm actually lying on my bed, and so the whole world tilts  around me just as I wake up again.

A very interesting picture, on many levels.

agreeing with all the others: masterful work! I love the somewhat chaotic motion created by the movement of all those elements. It is quite dizzying just to look at it, and yet she seems so relaxed :D

An amazing artwork. I really love the composition of the piece of the girl dreaming, while floating in the air.  The weightlessness of the experience comes into this picture. I also love the light effects of the warm glow from the lamp: and the cool blue light from the moon, through the window. Nicely done!

At first I thought it was a computer-animated girl, the scenery seemed like there was something blowing everything away from the window. I like the idea though.

Yup that is exactly how it feels to fall asleep.

Especially when you nod off in a chair and almost fall off XD

actually the first thing it made me feel was cold feet. really, just by looking at it, i got the urge you get in your sleep to cover your feet. which might say a lot about how good this is. or not. hard to say. but thumbs up for this in every case!

You perfectly captured the floating feeling when falling asleep. For some weird reason this makes me feel drunk though. ;)
I love how everything appears to be floating out of place. Can't fathom how much work you've put in this!
Thank you also for the Video which is very touching as the music goes so well with this theme! And there's a little additional point that makes me write ... I'd love to know what music this is ... ? :)
