“Sleepless Nights” by Kate Turning

Kate Turning takes a page from the fairytales with this magnificent photograph. The piece is titled “Sleepless Nights”, referencing the famous story “The Princess and the Pea” by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.

For those unfamiliar with the story (which seem to have its origins in old Scandinavian folklore), the mattresses were stacked on top of one single pea in order to test the sensitivity of an alleged princess. As you might have guessed, the pea indeed caused the princess to have one long, sleepless night.
