Hinkle Library to feature month-long ‘Endpapers’ photography exhibit

work by photographer Ann Parker“I was inspired by these endpapers and began taking photos of them,” Parker said. “I gradually added three-dimensional objects that mimicked the colors and patterns, or in some cases added opposite elements to the patterns and photographed the endpapers with these additions.”

Photographer Ann Parker, of Machias, will display a collection titled “Endpapers” from Sept. 3 through Oct. 4 at Alfred State’s Hinkle Memorial Library.

According to Parker’s exhibition statement, bookmakers in the 1800s employed artists to create patterned pages for the front and back of books, which were called “endpapers.” These pages then became works of art themselves, Parker’s statement continues, as swirling multi-colored patterns and hand-drawn designs evolved from various techniques used by artists.
