The Wake Up

Sleepy the Poet's The Wake Up is a multidisciplinary art project that combines spoken word with street photography and music. The project draws inspiration from the routine of everyday life and the story being told takes place over the course of one day.
The Wake Up is created in collaboration with photographer Jeroen Tissen and music producer Boy Wonder.
