Anaí Tirado Miranda
Something happened in the bed before the picture was taken. Someone was sleeping there, but who? In this project I interfered with my neighbours' most personal space: their beds. Encroaching with my presence, tainting their room, intruding with my camera: observing and scrutinizing; recording their intimacy. The series questions the power of the camera in the quest for breaking privacy barriers and invading personal spaces; but also the camera as an obstacle in the formation of a relationship between photographer and photographed. In After sleeping, the role of photographer allows me to go inside the homes and beds of strangers. Documenting this satisfies my voyeurism and my eagerness to intrude. In a strange way these images become my personal trophy.
