About “Sleeping Rough” – In this exhibition, Dana documents “Sleepy People” scattered throughout urban spaces. (*some are Homeless others are plain tired...) The exhibition showcases selected pictures from a collection of over 300 photos. All images are 100% authentic and not staged! Each image is printed on a white pillowcase and is hung on clotheslines with wooden pegs. This unique and playful display, creates a fresh perspective and a profound experience. It evokes the viewers to contemplate their own existence, and suggests that anyone at any time may find themselves on the edge and on the street, “Sleeping Rough”.
As a storyteller, I believe that the best way to show reality, is by using the "Holy Combination" of Humanity, Sensitivity and Humour. As I see it, people are people! Therefore, whether life, circumstances and unfortunate events brought you to your knees, or you possess the great talent of falling asleep in any condition, you deserve to be seen. In my Sleeping Rough project I document “Sleepy People” scattered throughout urban spaces. (some are Homeless others are plain tired) All images are 100% authentic and not staged! I truly believe that my work plays an important role in raising the awareness of homelessness and loneliness in this day and age.
