You Are Innocent When You Sleep
Project info

When you sleep
it doesn’t matter where you come from,
it doesn’t matter what you believe in.

What you have done or what has been done to you doesn’t matter either.

‘You are innocent when you sleep’ is a project where I depicted
sleeping refugees. These men accpeted and treated me as a family
member upon my arrival to the Netherlands in the fall 2012. In
the spring of 2013, very early in the morning I tiptoed around
them while they were really asleep to capture them as purely as
possible.
