Adrián Zorzano: The Sleeping Man

Work / Photography

Adrian Zorzano’s The Sleeping Man is a perfect short photographic story

Spanish photographer Adrián Zorzano has created one of the simplest, most poetic pieces of narrative photography we’ve seen in a long time. The Sleeping Man, a collection of 16 black and white photographs, documents four hours of cross-country bus journey sat next to a slumbering passenger. As the hours pass, the scenery changes outside but the man sleeps on, with only the height of the sun on his body suggesting the passage of time. It’s a simple idea immaculately executed. Top marks Adrián.
