Voyagers

A perfect whimsical book to welcome me back to my reading routine— a collection of found pictures of people reading. That’s it. Just photos of people reading various things like books, newspapers, letters. It’s mesmerizing and almost indescribable. Where do we go when we read? We voyage to another world. These photographs are evidence of the transportation of our minds to another planet, dimension, location. The people being photographed are there in body but definitely not in mind. And while they travel, their bodies remain here to be subjected to our tickling fingers, our sharp shouts to interrupt, our other torments.
