Level 1 – new book display

The current book display on Level 1 is WORLD – from Stieglitz to Gursky: a selection of fine, contemplative images of the natural world, drawn from the library photography book collection.  Most of the selection is from the ‘outsize’ section – which can sometimes be overlooked – and includes one or two lesser-known photographers such as Emmet Gowin and Frank Gohlke, whose work is nevertheless of outstanding quality.  The earliest photograph is by Alfred Stieglitz, taken around Lake George in 1922, and the most recent made by Aaron Rose in New York in 1999 (below).
