Recently I was surprised by one of my dear friends who sent me On Reading by André Kertész. This gorgeous little book by captures readers reading. There are children reading comics, women reading, men reading. Readers on balconies, on benches, on sofas and even walking.
The photographs were taken between 1915 and 1970 and feature readers from Tokyo, Paris, Hungary, New York, etc. I love imagining what books held their attention then. Was it a thriller, a political book, a classic novel, some erotica, who knows and how wonderful isn’t it?
Here is one of my favorite photographs.
I know my husband has taken pictures of me reading on trains. I love those pictures because not only am I with a book but traveling which I love to do. If someone could take a picture of you reading, where would you be and what would you be reading?
