Leanne Surfleet - Sleep Anxiety
'Sleep Anxiety' is a new body of work by photographer Leanne Surfleet. In it she explores the anxiety that has been effecting her over the past year. We were drawn to the ethereal self portraits and her portrayal of anxiety in such an honest and artistic way.
"After I fall asleep I wake up frantically searching for light with an extremely confusing and unnerving feeling that I'm dead and stuck in a kind of limbo. I literally need light to wake up and realise that I'm still here. I've been exploring this through self-portraiture using double exposures and direct sunlight and the shadows and darkness that fill the room.
