About the book:

“It is very tempting to call the women Carla van de Puttelaar has photographed for this book 'Sleeping Beauties'. After all, they are often lying on a bed and they always have their eyes closed.

About the artist:

The photography of Carla van de Puttelaar allows the eye to touch the skin on many different levels. In her nudes she wants to emphasize personality, vulnerability and intimate eroticism, as well as distance and, sometimes, alienation. Natural, northern light is one of Carla's most important tools and assets. She allows it to play around with her subjects and catches it at its most seductive moment, capturing it for posterity.
