Library Week Photo Exhibition: "Librarians within Life"

The theme of this year's photography exhibition, set to take plsce in the Library Festival, organized by the Library and Documentation Department of İstanbul University in 2013 and which has traditionaly been repeated every year with popular demand and appreciation is: "Librarians within Life"


Among the dusty shelves, the image of a librarian with a frowny eye and thick glasses has always been a popular one as everyone else’s in your life.  Another perspective that depicts the world from all its aspects with poetry and photograph. The libraries are as colorful and fun just as much as informative with the books in their repositories. Part of life with all its joy and sorrow. The shutter releases and records  a moment. This is exactly why we want these photos from you.  For an exhibition where we plan to open the library outside the library.  We want to display our closeness to culture and art as  books to photos
