I photographed the library of Congress in 2017. I am working on the libraries series since five years and I saw many libraries. This was the largest hall I ever visited.

Pictures for Inspiration, Imagination and Beauty

Reinhard Görner was born in Leipzig in 1950. He began taking photographs in his early youth. An encounter with the American architectural photographer Julius Shulman awakened his enthusiasm for architectural photography. Since 1982 he has worked as a freelance photographer with renowned architects, such as Norman Foster, Henning Larsen, Peter Eisenman, to name just a few. His images have been published in all major architectural magazines and featured in several book publications. Since 2006 he has been working as an artistic photographer. In 2010, he began working on a series of photographs of the most architecturally and historically interesting libraries around the world. His travels, inspired by this theme, have taken him throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe. He says: 'My pictures should inspire and address inner spheres of beauty and tranquility. Whether in the private sphere or in workspaces, create with my images views that convey peace, space and balance, as a basis for creativity and relaxation'.

Reinhard Görner lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
