Reading – The Utopia Experiment and The Catcher in the Rye

Reading - The Utopia Experiment and The Catcher in the Rye

From an ongoing street photography project entitled simply, ‘Reading.’

The basic premise of the project is that fewer and fewer people are reading printed media.  Instead we tend to be engrossed in our phones or tablets more often than not. This is particularly true in San Francisco where I work and spend a good deal of my free time.

It has become somewhat of a sport within my hobby capturing people reading a book or newspaper ‘in the wild,’ i.e. not at a coffee house or other safe location to sit and read.

The man in the foreground is reading The Utopia Experiment by Kyle Mills/Robert Ludlum and the woman behind him is reading The Catcher In The Rye by (duh) JD Salinger.
