Where They Create

‘Where They Create’ is a visual documentation of the creative environments of artist & creatives that Paul has met during his travels for assignments.

“Paul Barbera’s project documents, through images, creative working spaces from all around the world. With Where They Create, the Australian photographer – who started taking pictures of interiors almost by accident (“it’s the thing I do without thinking”) – changed his voyeurism into a sort of anthropological research. Looking for absurd and hidden things, Barbera enters the studios of international creative people – artists, art directors, architects, designers, stylists – and captures all the details of their personal stories and artistic processes. 
Barbera’s curiosity, naturalness and good eye for interiors, together with his ability to transmit emotions and warmth make this project unique. Creatives need to transform their offices into intimate spaces (like a home), and to keep his/her own things close to be able to create. Others could work anywhere, travelling with the bare essentials as Paul does. But everybody, even if for a while, leaves personal traces, aspects that don’t pass unnoticed… if you are able to catch them.
