A Look at Librarians

An amazing and soulful photographer, Kyle Cassidy, composed a photographic essay about librarians. His work is featured in a Slate article, "This is What a Librarian Looks Like."

Here is Kyle's favorite composition (it was not chosen for the Slate article).

Erin Berman, San Jose Public Library: Libraries are centers for knowledge
that everyone in our society can access. They provide a place for
discovery, creation and innovation. Libraries are our future
without them our democracy is lost.

Follow some of the commentary about the essay here. And here.
Kyle's photographic work served as our inspiration during a blogging workshop I attended in Tucson, Arizona in 2011. His ability to infuse photographs with a thoughtful, narrative quality continues to inspire me.
