My experience at HCP has shown me that photography books are just as important as the photo itself. Reading a few books while I either process or organize books has expanded my knowledge on various photographic topics (techniques, contemporary photographers, African American photographers, etc.). In a year filled with self-taught photography, I have learned so much more by opening random photography books. There is still more for me to discover and learn, and HCP's John Cleary Library is helping me do that!
