About the Book
In June and July of 2010, Dean MacKay, slept on 50 different couches in 50 consecutive nights and took photos of the couches, his hosts, and their homes. It was an act, initially born out of necessity. He needed a place to sleep when he could no longer afford his own. What it became, was a unique, transformational journey that continues to this day. This book is the first in a series of photography books, documenting that experience.
