Must-See Exhibition

This child is lost in the quiet, personal, and tactile, act of reading. He's made a nest of his newspapers, and is absorbed in a way that can never quite be achieved with the digital "equivalent". This series photographs (by the incomparable Andre Kertesz) was made between 1915 and 1970. The photographs were also published as a book ("On Reading") which has recently been re-printed.
