SCULPTOR AT WORK

A sculptor usually works in his studio, but also on location, or in factories producing large pieces. Since 1968, when I received my first commission, photographs have been made of me at work. On the following pages I'll write and tell about my experiences and comment on the visual documentation of my workplaces. There are even some photographs of my carving a palm tree log in my parents' backyard when I was fifteen.
