Meggan Gould is a New Mexico based photographer where she works as an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of New Mexico. Her work is mostly centered around still life photography, capturing the intimate moments of details of life. She has a beautiful series of images simply titled Workspaces which caught my eye has a browsed through them.

I think the success of this series is that she was able to capture such a wide variety of spaces, retaining the essence of what they are in each photo. The green house is all filled up with plants, the spinning wheel is surrounded by clumps of wool and the painter is surrounded by, well, all sorts of inspiring things to paint. Meggan’s ability to focus in the complexity or simplicity highlights not only the work being done, but the personality of the person making the work. Without even seeing the artisans behind these projects we get a sense of who these people might be.
