I’m pleased to announce the publication of my first monograph!

NO SLEEP: Hee Jin Kang
Introduction by Jonathan Ames
Published by Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg
Hardcover
96 pages
60 color ills.
x 10¾ inches

No Sleep is a series of photographs of abandoned mattresses found around New York City. I’m interested in how these beds, although mute, allude to all the things we do on them – sleep, dream, have sex. Dumped onto the streets, the mattresses are impermanent memorials to the city’s many private stories.

“Most of us are good when we’re sleeping. And yet our beds, which hold us in our most vulnerable and innocent moments (even a violent sociopath probably looks gentle while sleeping), can be so easily tossed aside and forgotten, no longer needed.”
