Thierry Bouët is a French photographer who works in a diverse range of formats spanning artistic photography to commercial portraiture. Deslits is the title of a photographic series and book. In 160 pages of photography and text, the book features a number of known and unknown French people as they sleep in their beds.

"Thierry Bouët is happy in his bed. That’s where much of his inspiration comes from. He wanted to check and see whether his intensely close bond with that particular piece of furniture was an illness. After interviewing people and photographing them in more than 80 beds, he could rest assured: some folks are even sicker than he is."
