Prisoner Of Sleep

In September 2016 I began a new stage of my life as I entered university. During the first few months, I became increasingly aware of how my peers and I struggle with time. Whilst negotiating the balance between our newly found responsibilities and our unrestricted freedom, it was often sleeping that was ignored. As I became aware of this lack of sleep I started to photograph my friends when they did finally drift off. These images, which are interspersed with screenshots from sleep deprivation forums, became my first documentary project.
