Side project: bookshelf portraits
Here is a little sneak peak of a side project I am working on. It goes by the project name “Bookshelf portraits”. The idea is to photograph bookshelves and make life size prints of them, so they can be observed as real life items.
Bookshelf’s are interesting as through new relationships, deaths and births they are in constant metamorphosis. These monuments of information of old times take up huge amounts of space in our homes and we carry the heavy boxes every time we move. Has the meaning of bookshelves changed into being just a conversational piece and a status symbol?
The project is still in its beginnings. Do you have or do you know of an interesting bookshelf? It does not have to be big, I also appreciate small things. I want to document the variety of ways people store their books.
