French photographer JF Rauzier has used his imagination to digitally construct “ideal libaries” from countless layers of his photographs.
Consisting of stunning, repetitive architectural elements, Rauzier’s libraries are spectacular, surreal and ooze unapologetic grandeur.
Most of these massive imaginary libraries are stuffed to the brim with books, but if you look closely at them, you will discover the people milling between the floor-to-ceiling shelves.
French photographer Pierre Beteille has produced a series of self portraits where, with a little digital magic, the text and the reader morph into some pretty cool imagery. From Robinson Crusoe to Charles Bukowski’s Notes of a Dirty Old Man and plenty in between enjoy this trip through Beteille’s reading life.
