Sofa So Naked.
Available with hard cover and dust jacket or softcover. 120 pages. Premium matt paper. Black and white with a splash of colour.
Each of the models appear naked on their own sofa, in their own home, with just one prop of their choice. Models are as exposed or covered as they choose, depending on their modesty and the size of their prop. The prop is chosen by the model to reflect their personality, whether related to their work, a hobby or perhaps it's a favourite possession. Each portrait is accompanied by a questionnaire filled in by the model and reproduced in the book exactly as they returned it, including doodles, lipstick and coffee stains...
'Sofa So Naked' is a snap shot of the society we live in. Peeping into the living rooms and lives of a cross section of our community, from students to celebrities, young to old.
From clashing patterns on carpets and curtains in the English countryside, to sleek minimalist apartments in NYC, the viewer soon becomes more interested in the models surroundings than in the naked body on display.
'Sofa So Naked' was photographed between 2004 and 2005 and is available in book format for the first time exclusively through blurb.com
Contains full frontal nudity.
