If You Love Books, These Photographs Will Make You Drool

"A dreamy, velvety, and nearly infinite visual paradise."

Photographer Franck Bohbot is known for immortalizing great architecture through the lens of his camera. He has ventured throughout the world to capture everything from great cinemas to city scenes to swimming pools. 

But his photographs of majestic libraries will transport you to a dream world where you thought only books could take you.

The project, entitled "House of Books," is a study of color, symmetrical composition and explores the relationship between the individual and space. 

"Each one of Bohbot's series features these photographic intentions -- through their engimatic atmosphere, documentary-style approach, and timeless feel, the photographer wants to transport the audience to a dreamy, velvety, and nearly infinite visual paradise," states the artist's website. 

"House of Majesty" is an ongoing project, as Bohbot intends to capture photographs of libraries in 10 cities from various parts of the world. As of now he has photographed only in Boston, Rome and Paris.

"I make pictures with my heart. Photography is moment of solitude, happiness and pain," says Bohbot on his website.
