The Library Project

We imagined a library dedicated to Photography and 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 1500 items from 200 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, The Library Project set out to offer the public an on-going collection of the latest photobooks, magazines and zines, whether produced by publishing houses or self published.

In 2012, the collection was expanded with the efforts of Arcangela Regis. Then, Claudi Nir, Alison Baker Kerrigan, and Svetlana Zabelka started cataloguing the items. In 2013, with the support and passion of Steven Maybury, Katie Mooney-Sheppard, Gill Thorpe, Sinéad Corcoran, and Lorna Murphy, the collection kept expanding, it was catalogued, and was finally made available online.

The curated selection holds already a respectable number of titles, and welcomes everyone, both individuals and organisations, to contribute to and enjoy this unique public resource library. This website offers an online catalogue with most of the items in the collection being constantly updated.
