Photographing withdrawn library books is one way to depict time’s relentless push forward and consider the institutions that change or fade as technology evolves. Some of these discarded books were rejected as no longer relevant to current culture, others were battered, and some contain inaccurate information. Libraries are often “weeded” to make room for new materials.

As society completes its move to a digital world, these small acts of personalization and artifacts of aging are harder to find. A handwritten dedication can convey sentiment to those who stumble across the volume long after the book’s original recipient has passed on. Illustrations, charts, even graphics and fonts speak to the values of specific time periods.

While working with these books, my head filled with narratives, not the tales put forth by their authors, but the stories of the book owners. I was struck by a child’s angry “impossible!” scribbled in response to the gift of a ponderous religious tome. What librarian so disliked a Dominick Dunne novel that she pummeled the book with numerous stamps? And how does a family give away grandmother’s golden anniversary gift?

Women In Focus is a non-profit artist-initiated organization of women photographers who have joined together to support and promote the photographic arts. It was founded in 1993 by a group of women who recognized the need for a formal network of women photographers who could assist in each others' personal, professional, and artistic growth. Women In Focus has become a thriving organization whose diverse membership includes photographic artists ranging from beginners to seasoned professionals, all brought together by their passion for photography. Women In Focus values each individual member for the unique contributions that she brings to the organization and strives to provide all members with the resources that they need to thrive as artists. Women In Focus is dedicated to facilitating a forum for open dialogue regarding photography in all of its forms. Educational programs address both technical proficiency and scholarship by incorporating lectures, workshops, and critiques and by covering topics relating to the history and business of photography as well as the creation of images. Women In Focus engages in community activity by hosting events all around Atlanta. The scope of the group's activities is further extended past the geographical area of its home base through an Internet presence and joint projects with women photographers around the world.
