"ARTIST STUDIO, A COMMUNITY" THE IRRESISTIBLE APPEAL OF ARTIST STUDIOS ... I have been photographing artists’ studios for several years in various parts of the world... Lica Roman, my mother was a painter- engraver, and I spent my childhood near her studio. That place, at the back of the garden, was magical for me. I was not allowed inside, except to pose, sitting very still on a chair. But everything attracted me like a magnet. There was such an array of objects. As soon as you crossed the threshold, a chaos of papers, canvasses, containers, pots, brushes and the smell of my madeleine -of Proust- turpentine, so deliciously reminiscent of my mother, filled your eyes and throat. With my camera, I am now able to freely enter this space that I long considered “sacred.” Through photography, I, in turn, create portraits of each of these artists. It is in the studio that their character and personality takes shape and is revealed.
