French photographer takes awesome shots of libraries around the world
Libraries hold a powerful aura. The literature and knowledge afforded by them can be felt when stepping into one, and now as reported at Petapixel, Parisian photographer Thibaud Poirier has perfectly captured that feeling in his work.
His collection simply titled “Libraries” is a meditative look into historic and contemporary libraries and the uniform power these places hold. The photographs have taken him across Europe to Germany and France and as far as South America, to Argentina. These “palaces of self-discovery” as Poirier calls them are celebrated through their symmetrical framing and warmth of colour.
Poirier, a landscape photographer, says that the buildings are reflective of one's self-discovery and learning.
“Literature offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore one's self from within through the unique internal narrative that each reader develops.”
We reckon the images are so lush and comfy that it'll make anyone want to sit down in one of them and pick up a book.
