What started as an Instagram series eventually became a ritual on my daily subway commute in New York City.  I am interested in the moment where public intersects private.  What happens to a person while they are absorbed in their book in very public and often crowded space?  And what does their body posture or facial expression tell us?  I like finding little tableaux.   What is happening around the reader?  I take these photos “undercover” because I don’t want the subjects to know they are being photographed.  This helps preserve the naturalness of the setting and more importantly, it protects the intimacy of the moment.
