To document the couches being surfed and the surfers who crash on them
I am a professional photographer wanting to do a documentary project on the trend/art/lifestyle of couch surfing. I am looking for the quintessential couch surfing arrangements (ie: actual couch vs. guest bedroom) and someone willing to let a photographer hang with them either at their house, or while they are surfers at someone else's. My work is purely documentary, though there might be some portraits thrown in for good measure. Especially if I find a really cool couch.
Please contact me if you might be down for this or know someone who would. The couches need to be in St. Louis, though surfers may be from all over the world. Unfortunately, I can't really pay anyone for letting me photograph them, but I could throw in some prints of you and your surfers.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I think the couch surfing project is one of the coolest things I have heard of in a while and I am dying to tell the story. Maybe, if we're all really lucky, this might become a book or something and the couch surfing world would get tons of publicity. Right now, I'm pegging it as a personal project and just trying to get it off the ground.
