Illuminating Cambridge Libraries

Take a trip into the heart of Cambridge's college libraries, all in one place

Libraries, those keepers of knowledge and places of quiet work, are celebrated this month in an exhibition at the Heong Gallery featuring Sara Rawlinson’s photography.

Illuminating Cambridge Libraries, from 11 to 17 February, showcases the tangible materials, textures and ephemeral light that work together to create the contemplative spaces where knowledge thrives.

It features libraries from 25 colleges at the University of Cambridge and also features lecterns designed in the late 17th century by Christopher Wren, on loan from the Wren Library at Trinity College.

Rawlinson spent much of her childhood in her grandmother’s darkroom in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and now runs a fine art photography studio from her home in Cambridge. Last year, she had three images shortlisted for Historic Photographer of the Year 2018.
