Project 365 2012/1 relax with a book

girl relaxing on sofa reading book on ipad2

I saw an image while browsing an old photo book, the image was taken in 1967 by Henri Cartier-Bresson of a girl lounging on a sofa with her book. What attracted me to it was the cropping. By not including the face it asks more of the viewer, we do not know who she is but more importantly we have to rely on her body language to convey mood and emotion. To bring it up to date and relevant the girl is reading an ebook on an iPad2, which was one of my early Christmas presents (actually birthday and Christmas).

I have always been of the opinion that Apple stuff is basically for fashion  geeks, but since having the iPad2 I might have to re-evaluate that opinion as the photo rendering and video streaming is amazing. But the rest of it leaves a little to be desired especially with web site compatibility.

  1. Great photo, black and white photo’s capture without distraction. I am an avid reader and loved this photo.

  2. Actually we do know who the woman in HCB photo titled “Matine’s Legs”. Matine was his wife or probably in this case his future wife. They had a thirty year age difference but stayed together until HCB passed on.
