photo-eye Gallery is excited to present Biblioteca, a new series by represented artist Susannah Hays.
Approaching her photographic practice as a philosopher, Susannah Hays experiences poetic material renderings of our phenomenological world. Investigating tangible objects, each of her camera and cameraless images reveal a hidden beauty that asks us to remember where things come from—how they arrive and why they endure.

Biblioteca, her series of medieval books from the Tuscan region of Castiglion Fiorentino, sit on their shelves undisturbed. While DNA research unravels when and where they were made, visible traces of who touched, held and kissed them offer lasting impressions. Enlarged larger than life, we experience their threadbare spines. Made of plant and animal flesh, their shapes are in some sort of enigmatic way, like us. Standing in silent dignity, century after century, they prevail as they always were—vessels of embodied knowledge.



Prints from Biblioteca are available in limited editions, please inquire with 
Gallery Staff at 505-988-5152 x 202 or gallery@photoeye.com about sizes, prices, and availability.
