Artifacts from The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.

To promote this year’s Frieze New York art fair, photographer Nicholas Calcott has shot artefacts from the studios of various legendary New York artists – including Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring and Jackson Pollock. Selected and arranged together details, the items form portraits of each artist; battered tools, notes and ephemera offer the briefest of glimpses behind the curtain. I'm particularly drawn to Josef Albers’ Pantone guide – I bet that seems some thumbing in its time.
