I first met photographer Robert Dawson in the late '80s when he was working on a monumental work called “Water in the West.”
That project is still going after 35 years so I was not surprised to learn that he has spent the last 20 years working on a book called “The Public Library.”
Criss-crossing the country he he shot 557 libraries and topped 250,000 miles in his Toyota Camry. The book will be released April 8, just in time for National Library Week, April 13-19.
Check out the photos above or the video below and you are excused from checking out a book during library week.
