André Kertész, The Private Pleasure of Reading

Whether in a garden, on a bus, in a café, a library or a sitting room, on a terrace or in bed, at school or at war, standing, sitting or lying, the reader is always in another world. And it is this spatial and temporal separateness, this emotional and spiritual elsewhere that André Kertész captured in his photographs. He manages to convey the process whereby the reader becomes a hostage to their text, a delighted prisoner of the intimate dialogue with the text.
