Sanctuary: Britain’s Artists and their Studios from publishers Thames & Hudson features photographs by Robin Friend that take us behind the scenes into the workspaces of 120 British artists including Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry and Tony Cragg.

The book gives readers a comprehensive overview of their working environments and methods, and each profile includes an interview exploring the artist’s relationship to their studio. A diverse range of workspaces are featured in Sanctuary, with apartments, lofts, sheds, warehouses and other locations. Antony Gormley uses a purpose-built 930 square metre studio in London, while Roger Hiorns has his studio in an empty shop at the end of a housing estate.
