I'm a huge fan of Martyn Thompson's work and especially his previous book Interiors, so my interest was definitely peaked when I heard he had a new book on work spaces.
Thompson's work focuses not on the traditional interiors you would expect to see. Instead he shoots the unexpected showing us a different take on interior photography.
Working Spaces throws the traditional artfully designed work spaces out the window and instead shows real spaces where a variety of artists, writers, dancers and performance artists create.
It never hides the debris and messy detritus of creation and instead celebrates it.
From thoughtful (and necessary) moments such as a cup of half drunk coffee to products in their finishing stages.

French ceramicist Annabel Adie's organic pieces. In the book Martyn talks about arriving in Paris with only a phone number of a friend of a friend and no idea of who he was going to shoot. These are the beautiful results.
