Mystery photo

On the subject of what artists get up to in libraries Alex Stephenson created Mystery Photo a set of books that exist as twenty five copies in the permanent collections of libraries and archives.

The books feature ninety photographs of 'mysterious content', submitted by the general public to Nottinghamshire libraries in 2006. Alex sorted them into Dewey categories, aware that the subjective scrutiny of the Dewey Decimal system allowed for multiple readings of each image.
