Whilst waiting to shoot Jo Nesbø for the Indy, New Review last night….
24 July, 2012
I found this guy in the A-F section of crime at Waterstones looking for a holiday book.
Along the same lines I have very kindly been sent a copy of Andre Kertesz’s, On Reading after admiring the book on someones shelf recently. My favorites are the New York rooftops.
Henri Cartier-Bresson once said of himself, Robert Capa, and Brassaï, “Whatever we have done, Kertész did first.” He was referring to André Kertész, one of the giants of 20th-century photography, whose work spanned more than 50 years. On Reading presents 100 photographs that examine the power of reading as a universal pleasure, made by Kertész in Hungary, France, Asia, and the United States over the course of his career. Collectively, these images reveal Kertész’s penchant for the poetry and choreography of life in public and in private moments at home, and evoke the love affair people have with the written word.
