Photographer Captures Beautiful Symmetrical Shots of Libraries Around the World

Paris-based photographer Thibaud Poirer knows how to expertly capture interiors. In his latest series, Libraries, Poirer offers a gorgeous glimpse inside some of the world's most unique reading rooms.

Simmilar to his previous work, Libraries presents the symmetrical beauty and diverse decorative styles of various institutions' interiors. Some, like Biblioteca Joanina in Coimbra, Portugal and Bibliothèque de la Sorbonne in Paris, France feature ornate architecture inspired by a classical aesthetic. Others, including Germany's Grimm Zentrum Library and Stadtbibliothek, convey an entirely modern approach to design. Ultimately, regardless of style, each library boasts an appearance that is both awe-inspiring and deeply historic.
