The working environment around the people who create art, music, design, fashion — that space is just as fascinating and worthy of exploration as the work itself. That’s the conceit behind photographer Paul Barbera‘s Where They Create website, an online gallery of images the Australian native has captured from the workspaces of creatives around the globe. The photos are not only beautifully shot, they are insightful in a uniquely intimate way. Highlights from the site will be collected and published in book form, to be released September 2011. Barbera’s latest stop was at the Shanghai offices of advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy – Shanghai. Click below to see more images from his visit.
