Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek

During the years1998 and 1999 I spent just about a year photographing the Anna Amalia Library in Weimar. This body of work is part of my continuing study of cultural heritage and what it is that we create and leave as testimony to our humanity. A suite of these photographs has been published in a monograph on the history of the library*. Other work from this series was exhibited during Weimar's year as European Cultural Capital in 1999**.
