While studying at an art academy in the Netherlands, Dutch photographer Katy Strange took her time creating the photo series 789. The name takes count of the literal number of days over which she captured the friends and lovers who shared her bed at the university. Katy says her “bed-stories” were a window into her life as a student after hours.
Each photo is a placeholder for a memory, a bunkmate diary of sorts. A girls’ night in with best friends. A one-night stand with a fellow art student. Late night stories or brave new explorations. Strange has proof of them all.
