Cara Barer Photography

Texan photographer Cara Barer takes absolutely beautiful photographs of books - worn, tattered, curled up old books.
Cara gets the effect by soaking books in her bathtub...

My photographs are primarily a documentation of a physical evolution. I have changed a common object into sculpture in a state of flux.

The way we choose to research and find information is also in an evolution. I hope to raise questions about these changes, the ephemeral and fragile nature in witch we now obtain knowledge, and the future of books."
