The Library Project.
We imagined a library dedicated to Photography & Image Culture
with unique, contemporary publications from all over the world,
for you to enjoy.
The Library Project is a collection of publications around Photography, the core of a public resource library already holding over 900 items from 150 publishers worldwide, a wealth of publications unseen in Ireland.
Imagine a library dedicated to Photography and Image Culture with unique, contemporary publications from all over the world, free for you to enjoy. Initiated in 2011 by Claudi Nir and Ángel Luis González Fernández, from PhotoIreland, the first phase of ‘The Library Project’ sets out to offer the public an on-going collection of the latest photobooks, magazines and zines, produced by independent publishing companies, well-established, large publishing houses and self published. In 2012, the collection was expanded with the efforts of Arcangela Regis, and in 2013, with the support and passion of Steven Maybury, Katie Mooney-Sheppard, Gill Thorpe, Sinéad Corcoran, and Lorna Murphy.
The curated selection holds already over 900 items from 150 publishers worldwide, and welcomes everyone, both individuals and organisations, to contribute to and enjoy this unique public resource library. Currently, the website offers over 600 items from the collection, and we will keep adding to it the full catalogue of photobooks, zines, magazines and new arrivals.
The Library Project is located at 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland.
More details about the library and plans for the second phase, the parallel Educational Programme and other events will be made available soon, and will be shared in our Facebook page.
