This book gives us an entry into the spaces where creative ideas are born and nurtured and brought to life. Larry Schwarm is a talented and intuitive photographer who worked hard at capturing the individual character of the subjects. Together the author and photographer personally visited every artist at least once. We marveled at the variety of studios tucked into basements, garages, free-standing buildings and even an old former church. Without exception, the artists shared their time and some of their aspirations with us.
