Sculptor Richard Hunt at Work in his Chicago Studio

Chicago, Illinois, USA

I had planned to take this for "Borders" but Richard's schedule required a later date.

I've always thought Richard's studio looks exactly like a movie set for a sculptor, particularly when a work is nearing completion.
As I walked around looking for the best angle, he said "I've got some grinding to do...."
The piece he is working on is in stainless, made yellow by heat lamps on the outside wall.

Basic Brownie and one or two small bits of experience.
Behind the scene : how this panorama was made
Nothing fancy here. I double shot the images to cover the dynamic range involved, then processed to retain detail throughout. Total number of images used was 90, or 45x2.
As noted, I left the yellow of the heat lamps in the picture because it just felt right.
I also left Richard alone, because it was clear he was under deadline pressure. I liked the idea that he was working, not posing, in part because he is a modest person and it seemed to fit him well.
