Sidney Sussex College

Fine art photography of the Richard Powell Library, Sidney Sussex College Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. The library was built in the 1920s and refurbished in the 1990s. It’s a cheery utilitarian space, with calming blue and yellow themes throughout. Of special note are the varied book spines and geometric features. A puzzling photograph looks up at the staircase (with a mirror on the wood panelled ceiling, see ‘Stairs‘).

This photographic collection of the Richard Powell Library at Sidney Sussex College Cambridge was photographed in 2018 and contains 48 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.

Created and presented with thanks to the librarians and by kind permission of the Master and Fellows of the College. Click here to learn more about the library.
