Paul Barbera Shoot Anna Karlin’s Studio for Where They Create

Anna Karlin is an English furniture, lighting, jewelry and object designer based in New York. Her studio practice also encompasses set design, digital design, and layout, making her a multi-disciplinary creative. Her pieces have high brow minimalist touch, and each discipline informs the other. Paul first met Anna through a shoot for Whistles, and decided to revisit her at her new studio in the Lower East Side. She has created a very homey and convivial working space for her team. At the time, she was pregnant with her first child and she was a glowing mother-to-be.

Isolate + Create: ‘The Long Night’ by Craig Wall

‘Like pretty much every other person on this planet at the moment, I’ve been rendered absolutely numb, jaw agape, as each day passes. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

To keep myself sane, I’ve been working on finishing various photographic projects that I had to place on the back burner as I balanced a busy schedule shooting work for commercial clients with parenting 2 small children. As horrible as the circumstances are, the upside is that it has helped me to re-discover what drew me to photography in the first place. This social isolation project came out of that journey back inwards.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This terrifyingly contagious virus is tearing apart the very fabric of what it means to be human – as a species we are defined by our need to be physically near each other, regardless of whether we are interacting intimately or co-existing independently in the same space. It’s at the very heart of who we are and how we got here. It’s our culture.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This project is my attempt to express the feeling of isolation that comes from having to deny that most basic of human instincts.’⁠⠀
