Sara Rawlinson, Illuminating Cambridge Libraries
A stunning book of photography exploring the historic, diverse libraries of the colleges of the University of Cambridge. Photographer Sara Rawlinson explains her inspiration:
Honouring the dissemination and preservation of knowledge, this monograph is a contemplation of my three year experience photographing one library from each of the 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge.
Overall, these 490 photos tell the story of visiting a library, and so the chapters are organised by the elemental order in which they might be experienced – Stairs, Books, Textures, Spaces, Details, Spines, Ceilings, Windows. Each chapter starts with a brief artist’s motivation, followed by the images sorted into mosaics of shape, colour, or lightness – a formalist approach to evoke aesthetic emotion.
