Throughout the history of photography's existence, the book has been one of the primary means of disseminating photographs. But books are slowly disappearing, at least from our consciousness, if not quite yet from our bookstores. So where does the library sit in this increasingly digitised age? Required to provide access to books via the Internet, to collect books and journals in only digital form, even to protect the book as if it were in a museum, the roles of both the book and the library as social institutions are undergoing a quiet revolution. Through this series of images of the British Library, one of the world's largest (& greatest) libraries, I hope to at least ask, if not answer, some of these questions.
