Abstract:

" ... [Carnegie] established eighteen libraries around New Zealand, four in Australia, and one in Fiji, between 1902 and 1916 ... At every location, Smith has combined the sensibility of a conceptual artist with the formal and technical skills of a documentary photographer, in order to record lovingly the everyday lives of these heritage buildings. The result is a mesmerizing and often poignant meditation on technological obsolescence, small-town politics and contradictory ideas of progress."--Introduction.
