Audio slideshow: Eamonn McCabe - Writers' Rooms

"I have always enjoyed photographing loners. When I was covering sport it was boxers in their gyms. Now I'm older, I enjoy photographing writers, poets and artists. The one thing they all have in common is that they work alone." Eamonn McCabe
There's a marvellous audio slideshow of this show which we mentioned earlier in the week at the BBC's site produced by Emma Lynch. McCabe, pictured above, talks us through his favourite rooms and garden offices. Look out for Martin Amis' shed and Russell Hoban's 'lived-in' home office...

  1. Oh my god I LOVED it. I love it. I enjoy looking at that series in the paper, principally because (whatever Eamonn claims) THEY'RE ALL EXACTLY THE SAME!
