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
Contains full frontal nudity.

About the Author

Dean Stockings
DAStockings Worthing, UK

'Sofa So Naked' is a departure from Stockings's usual colourful, kitsch and often camp studio shoots which he has become known for the world over.

Described by Bowens Litebook as one of the UK's pre-eminent photographers, he primarily shoots fashion and portraiture, working regularly with celebrities such as Boy George, Samantha Fox, Toyah Willcox and Beverley Knight.

Shooting for magazines as far afield as Australia, Europe and the USA, his work has graced the covers of many international publications and been included in exhibitions and photographic anthologies around the world. Following on from numerous press and magazine articles about his work, in 2009 the prestigious Professional Photographer magazine ran a six page article on him entitled "A Day in the Life of Dean Stockings".

His offshoot continues to handle growing numbers of traditional and civil ceremony wedding commissions.
