The space between work and window describes the place of an artist in the studio and the photographer’s place for recording a moment during a studio visit. It refers also to a metaphorical space between the outside world and the artists’ way of seeing and interpreting it. This exhibition of photographs of Royal West of England Academicians forms part of a larger collection of portraits, documenting British artists in the context of their working environment. It is an ongoing project that began more than thirty years ago with photographs of artists commissioned for press and news agencies and that is now pursued largely out of personal interest and based on commissions from the art galleries and publishers. 
These images have come to reflect social changes as well as new practices and a new approach to using studio space. The selection of 35 photographs for this exhibition illustrates these developments. A third of the portraits were taken specifically for this occasion during the past year.
