A Couch Series
Author(s): Lee Pritchard
A beautiful book of local artists and all the proceeds go to Cranford Hospice.
Lee Pritchard is not what you would call a couch potato, however the couch was where he and his girlfriend came up with a creative plan.
The self-employed plumber is always busy and loves to take photographs. At the end of last year he was working at an artist's house and asked him if he could take his photo.
"He was sitting on his couch and the photo was really nice. On New Year's Eve I sat with my girlfriend and we tried to think of a way we could use the image. We thought why not do something with 20 creative people, and then we thought, what about a couch series? Photos of creative people sitting on their couches."
That is how his book A Couch Series began.
Little did they know what 2020 had in store and how relevant a couch would become to people during lockdown.
"I compiled a list of people I wanted to contact and my thoughts at the time were that any profit would go to a men's health organisation. However, in the end we decided that it would go to Cranford Hospice because we wanted to make sure any profit stayed here in the Bay."
