Open Up Sheffield holds an annual artists' open studios event. Each year, a different photographer is commissioned to photograph selected studios and the artists working within them. For the 10th anniversary event in 2008, David Shapiro was given a specific brief for each selected studio, to highlight each in its physical and social context, as well as its range of purposes -- such as education and community engagement.
