The Global Library – A Photographic Essay
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
In 2016, Robert Dawson, his wife Ellen Manchester, and their son Walker and began The Global Library Project. They started by photographing libraries in northern and eastern Europe, as well as Ukraine and Moscow. Their journey took them from a library in the infamous refugee camp called the Jungle in Calais, France to Holocaust-haunted former synagogues turned into libraries in Poland to libraries close to the hot war in eastern Ukraine to the National Library of Russia called the Lenin Library.
Two years later, Robert received a 2018-2019 Fulbright Global Scholar Fellowship to spend six months with Ellen in Greece, Italy and Israel. Throughout this Fellowship they worked tirelessly to understand the role of libraries in each of these countries with their connected and separate histories and cultures.
Join them and the National Library of Israel for some stunning photos and eye-opening insights.
