Kelsy Gossett's Wake Up series documents a tepid space between living and sleep, punctuated by the confused, scared or vulnerable emotions of the people she is photographing. Kelsy photographs couples, individuals, and friends in their safest space of recuperation: their bed. The bedroom is political;, it is where the individual crafts their identity, cultivates a living space and plasters their personality. In Wake Up, Kelsy seeks to touch on these elements, but more importantly, capture the moment of intimacy that occurs between people after waking. The moment after waking could be dictated as the one where we, as a subject, are perhaps most vulnerable. Our emotions are often unsettled and somewhat altered by the dream lands we may have just been visiting.
