Sara Meghdari is a photographer from Iran living in NYC. Over the past year, she’s been working on a unique photo project. It’s called “Sleeping With NYC.”  The project involves spending a night with New York natives and photographing them while they fall asleep. I was introduced to Sara through my wonderful friend Alex who is also a visual artist.

Alex asked if I would be interested in participating Sara’s project. I said I would love to. So Sara and I came up with a date and she came over to my place to photograph my nighttime routine. Her photographs came out beautifully. At first I thought, how will I fall asleep while she’s photographing me? But the sound of the clicking camera put me right to bed.

Here are some other examples of her work below. She’s quite talented.
