Marco Anelli: Artist Studios New York
The crucible of creation: portraits of New York artists in the intimate seclusion of their work spaces
Since 2011, New York–based Italian photographer Marco Anelli (born 1968)—author of Portraits in the Presence of Marina Abramovic—has been exploring the artist's character and work as expressed in the studio.
The artist’s studio occupies a unique place in the popular imagination. Its environment is both the site of the artist’s creative production and a deeply private, personal space that nourishes and bears witness to the artist’s working process, in a continuous interplay with its location, layout, interior and ambiance. Access to the studio by a trusted visitor provides a unique opportunity to experience the lives of artists working in New York, through their methods, materials and influences, contained within the intimate space of the studio, and observed with an acutely sensitive eye.
