Library Porn by Candida Höfer : How does it make you feel?

September 26, 2017

In theory, the internet is a new kind of library, minus the direct connectivity to other humans, but still a place that represents expansiveness.  Except, the internet is gloriously faceless + placeless.  What would the internet even look like?  A dirty mall?  A circus?  Las Vegas?     

 

We were reminded this morning of one of our favorite photography books of all time.   In her book appropriately called Libraries , Candida Höfer displays immaculate portraits of some of the world's most beautiful libraries.   Pouring through the pages, all manner of feelings and ideas connect - eroticism, sex, intimacy, silence, privacy, peace, expansiveness...

 

But what does it make you feel?
