The most beautiful libraries in the world in the lens of a German photographer
German photographer Reinhard Görner has been photographing libraries around the world since 2008. Over the years, more than 50 storage facilities in different parts of the world have fallen into his lens. It is difficult to look away from his works: the spectator is fascinated by the harmonious symmetry of the rooms, the luxurious decoration of the rooms and endless rows of books — the whole Universe of knowledge, which is just waiting for you to remove the first volume from the shelf.
Görner himself describes his series:
My goal is to expand the boundaries of the familiar world in photographs, tell the viewer a story and illuminate everyday life.
It seems to us that he is doing great. We invite you to admire the works of Görner!
