Who? Angelika Platen
What? Her beguiling new book of monochrome photographs published by Hatje Cantz.
Why? Platen has gained unprecedented access to the beating heart of an artist’s world: their studio. She has photographed over 500 artists – Jeff Koons, Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter and Warhol among them – and her intimate shots reveal flashes of their personality and work. She also took her subjects outside, snapping them on airport runways and up in the trees.
Where? Angelika Platen: Artists is available here.
