Leeds Library Intervention

Some of the final pairs of images produced as part of the Leeds Library Intervention.

Books were selected from the library by searching for found bookmarks which could be seen from the shelves before opening the books themselves.

Once selected, the bookmarked page was opened and the found bookmark photographed in situ.

The bookmark or fragment was then removed and the first phrase from the open page was written down.

The library reference number on the spine of the book was also recorded.

Away from the library, these scribbled phrases and paper fragments were then photographed together to be placed with the original photograph taken in the library.

These images were among the range that were exhibited in the Leeds Library Vernon Street Gallery and now also form part of an artist book produced by the artist.
