Photographer's Note

We believe that book reading is slowing down due to emergence of other media. But I believe that reading depends of readable materials. If a text is good people read it no matter what. I captured this man in a street in Tehran. His asset is limited to some bunches of vegetables on sale. Sunshine shows that it is too late to sell vegs to the passing by housewives. He does not care. He is reading a magazine he loves. It is possible that his reading ratio is more than that of some intellectuals living or driving in this neighborhood. He is sitting on a box full of books waiting to be read.
