IN LOVE WITH THE LIBRARY IN SALAMANCA

 

m

Today I visited the old library at the University of Salamanca which is considered to be one of the most beautiful libraries in the western world. This picture is taken by the Turkish architect and fine art photographer Ahmet Ertug based in Istanbul, and the photo is one out of many in his famous book ; Temples of knowledge; Historical libraries of the western world.

“Ahmet Ertug’s photography has a deep meditative energy and it withdraws the observer into the intellectual content of his subjects, ranging from the vast interior of monumental buildings to the silent gazes of ancient sculptures.”
