‘Where They Create’ captured on paper

August 3, 2011


Interiors photographer Paul Barbera started his blog Where They Create in 2009. After shooting the studio of one of his friends, an artist, he realised he had found his own true voice. Peeking behind the scenes of creative studios in the most natural and unobtrusive way possible was a means to satisfy his never-ending curiosity towards spaces and people alike. And now… wheretheycreate.com has become a book.

Where Barbera’s blog documents only part of his journey, this book dives in further. Barbera’s search is simple and clear: he only visits the studios of people whose work he loves and whose space he likes. For this book, Barbera chose 32 studios which form a diverse selection of his work. Featured are media companies like the magazines Wallpaper* and Fantastic Man, ad agencies like KesselsKramer, and fashion houses such as Acne and Opening Ceremony, as well as artists, architects, illustrators and designers from all over the world.



In addition to the photos (more than 350), descriptions of the spaces by the owners of the studios are included in the book. Interviews with these creators reveal not only how their daily environment influences their output, but also what’s on their desk and even what’s in their fridge.
