The successful weblog Where They Create documents studios where creativity takes place by showing the work of interior photographer Paul Barbera. Now it's time to make a book. Where they Create captures thirty studios from all around the world; studios of painters, sculptors, designers, architects, advertising agencies, and many others, some very well known, others only starting out. The studios of Wallpaper* magazine, Clive Wilkinson Architects, Jeremiah Goodman, and Opening Ceremony are included. Important to Barbera is that the photographed studios are somehow connected to someone Barbera knows and that he likes the creative space or the work they do.Where They Create is also a break from the work Barbera does for several interior magazines, where everything is styled and considered. Instead the images for this book are as Barbera finds the spaces, un-styled and raw. Just the way they are. Each project is described with personal information from the owner of the studio and Barbera himself. Alexandra Onderwater has written for many international magazines, including Wallpaper*, i-D, and Frame.Paul Barbera was born in Melbourne, Australia, but now works between Melbourne and Amsterdam, living in various locations that include Berlin, Prague, Singapore, and Rome. During this time, Paul established himself as an interiors and fashion photographer, working with publications like View on Colour, Bloom, and Vogue Living.show more

Review quote

'Australian photographer Paul Barbera's highly anticipated new book Where There Create has arrived! And can I just say - it is so so SO beautiful.' -- Thedesignfiles.com 'This book reveal what it's really like inside a designer's world.' -- New York Times 'Barbera's vision and technique is organic and natural. Unlike other interior photographers, there is no setting up process during his shoots.' -- Forbes 'So many wonderful takes on workspace from Sydney to Shaghai in one spot is great inspiration to get back to your own work. Or work on your space.' -- Core77.com 'Where They Create is not -just a book-. It's a one-man journey that had its inception 20 years ago, but did not find a destination until one afternoon in 2009.' -- Dexigner.comshow more
