Magnificent libraries photographed around Europe


Reinhard Görner is a German photographer specializing in architecture and the fine arts. For the photographic series “Libraries”, he travels across Europe to capture the solemnity of the libraries of the Old Continent. From Madrid to Stuttgart, passing through Turin, he immortalises modern immaculate white interiors, monumental frescoes and the old woodwork of these places dedicated to knowledge.

Absolutely stunning images. If you want to know where the specific images are, you’ll have to go to Görner’s website to see the captions. My bucket list includes this staircase of the Lello Bookstore in Porto, Portugal.
