Libraries mean a special place to us all, a place to get away to get lost to ourselves and rediscover ourselves again through books. These books intrigue us and warm our hearts whilst reading them in a magical and beautifully exciting place. That’s how a Franck Bohbot would describe a library to you, originally from France this photographer has an unreserved love for reading and upon this fondness he has decided to go round the world photographing beautiful libraries. Now living in New York since 2013, Frank has gone great distances to capture the beauty of Libraries through the lens of a camera.
Bibliothèque du Sénat, Paris
The smell of old ink ,pages of old books and artifacts hang in the air in most of the worlds libraries, row and rows of book makes them all seem to look alike. Comfortable furniture and centuries old architecture distinguishes some but one common thing to all libraries is that they all house knowledge and so much history.
