School boys reading a textbook

by Verena Kick

This excerpt taken from André Kertész' "On Reading" (1971) shows several school boys reading a textbook. My focus is on the school boy in the foreground of the photograph who has curled up and seems to be intently engaged with his reading that both has texts and photographs. I will use this image in my Scalar book to demonstrate to my online readers what kind of reading practice I expect from them.
