Organized library shelves get the abstract treatment

First there was food porn. Then there was Village Porn. Now, for the literary, library folks, there seems to be book porn. Courtesy of photographer Danae Falliers, this kind of book porn captures the colour and organization of library shelves.

After photographing each shelf, Falliers then uses digital manipulation to get rid of text and to blend the colours together. The result? Almost abstract-like photographs of favourite literary books.

Falliers explains her project, Library: ‘I am intrigued by ideas of transience, transcendence, and permanence. I’m interested in the co-existence of movement and stillness, color and pattern, realism and abstraction, flatness and depth. My pieces show the fleeting nature of transition, difficult to grasp but known to our perception, recognizable to our consciousness and memory’. Bet you never thought of that while perusing the library!
