The Faces and Environments of Art and Their Makers

A studio, traditionally viewed as a place for the teaching and study of art, should be considered amongst the most intimate of an artist’s spaces. It is telling, in many respects, of the influences, desires, and creative processes of a given individual—in essence, they are places that invariably foster the conceptual and/or physical development of ideas. Rarely, however, does the public gain access to such spaces. Kurt Edward Fishback (American, b. 1942) has seemingly achieved the impossible by capturing a world that—for all intents—has remained largely invisible in the history of art. These photographs not only offer a glimpse at the faces behind the work, but the spaces these photographers and artists have essentially made their homes.
