Andy Cohen's Desk Photograph by Joseph O. Holmes

Photographer Joseph O. Holmes has an ongoing obsession with the intersection of a person's personal and professional lives: their workspace. For more than five years, he has documented the spaces exactly as he has found them, neither arranged nor styled for the camera. Through "a complex dance of explanation, skepticism, persuasion, and fascination that goes back and forth," he convinces his subjects to allow him to photograph their workspace. "What I end up capturing," he says, "turns out to be the work that was interrupted to answer the door." — Brent Murray
