Thibaud Poirer Captures Symmetric Pictures of Libraries from Around the World

Although he is now settled in Paris, photographer Thibaud Poirer spent most of his life traveling between many countries and experiencing many cultures. That had a great influence on his perception of capturing interiors. He traveled from one city to another with his camera taking shots of the world’s most famous libraries. The symmetrical shots are extraordinary, and they convey the grandiose of the interior.
