Life changes, and with it, so will your art. "It's called an art practice because you have to practice it," says Rachel Barrett, 33. Earlier in her career, she criss-crossed the U.S., documenting cooperative, back-to-the-land communities in Bolinas, California, and upstate New York, as well as roadside markets and oddities at points in between. After the birth of her child in March 2014, she traded many of her travel-heavy projects for new ideas she could explore locally. Working in her home studio in Brooklyn, New York, she's creating a series of still lifes called Specimens.
