法国艺术家Leonora Hamill在Art in Process系列中,用大画幅相机客观的记录下艺术学校学生的画室模样。她的动机也颇为有趣,三年前,她前往广州美术学院任教,因常常在这座由红砖外墙包裹的巨大学校中迷路,而误撞进许多画室中,虽然每个画室有所不同,却总能看到诸如米开朗基罗的大卫雕像之类的东西,她开始怀疑艺术是如何在东西方不同国家被教授的,于是,她走访了欧洲、亚洲、非洲和美洲的不同艺术学校,用大画幅相机客观的记录下这些学生学习艺术的画室。

‘Art in Progress’ is an exploration of art schools across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Leonora Hamill photographed empty studios in art schools marked with the richness of the activities undertaken by the students. These images, shot with a large format camera and printed analogically, are intentionally detailed, frontal and neutral. They invite the spectator to enter the studios in these schools and observe the freshly used tools of the trade which are perceived as traces that indicate, or allow us to imagine, the artistic experimentation that take place there.
