What We’re Loving:
“Where They Create” is an ever-growing collection of photographs of creative spaces by Australian photographer Paul Barbera. His images of offices, studios, and workshops everywhere from New York to Bangkok tend to focus on small details while effectively capturing the greater atmosphere of the locations. There is something poetic about the photographs, but at the same time they are humble, delicate, and, above all, honest. None of the spaces are prepared or tidied before Barbera’s arrival; he finds beauty in the chaos. Looking through this collection, which is also available in book form, you might get the sinking feeling that your own creative space is desperately inadequate. Well, I’m afraid that in comparison to places like the offices of Studio TooGood in London, it probably is. —Arthur Holland Michel
