The Art of Reading
Project info

The Art of Reading is a series of candid images (beginning in 2001)of folks (mostly New Yorkers) reading books & other printed matter in public places. Inspired by Andre Kertesz's ON READING published in the early 70's, it is a modern day look at Reading books in the digital age, when reading books has become somewhat of a dying art.
