The subject of these dark, somewhat brooding photos is an abandoned library emptied of its contents. Details of barren shelves, a rickety old library ladder and a forlorn piece of bookbinding left on the floor hint at some sort of narrative, but the point of the images seems to be precisely the opposite: that the who, what, when, where and how of this situation can never be divined.
