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.
