As a travel photographer, my favorite subject to shoot is architecture.

Libraries hold some of the most treasured interior architecture that I have ever seen. They are beautiful, colorful, ornate and exquisite to photograph. Here are many of the libraries that I have photographed during my travels.

The Frick Museum also has a small library section. And a garden. And two paintings: Holbein and the anti-Holbein. The NYC public library is a wonderful place. The Greenwich library in CT has an agreement with the NYC library; I used that to check out books not available in the Greenwich stacks. Libraries carry our history; libraries are the soul of civilizations. The printing press made it possible for all people to access written material. The monks left a legacy of beauty in their illustrated works; I saw some of those lovely small books in Antwerp, Belgium. Protect our libraries and our right to vote: they represent civilization from over 2,000 yrs. ago.
