The Art of Reading by Lawrence Schwartzwald

Lawrence Schwartzwald’s The Art of Reading: A Photo Essay is his first published book containing over 60 photographs of candid moments of people deep in thought and immersed in the pages of printed words.

Inspired by photographer André Kertész’s 1971 photo essay On Reading, Schwartzwald, a photojournalist and NYPPA member, focuses on New York, but takes readers further to other cities like Miami, Cambridge and Florence, Italy.

The Art of Reading is available for purchase through McNally Jackson Independent Booksellers.
