Reinier Gerritsen's The Last Book at Julie Saul Gallery

Reinier Gerritsen, The Last Book

Reading on the subway is an art form: it takes great skill and training to hold a book and turn the pages with the same hand while using your other hand to grip the pole and/or subtly push the idiot next to you who can't be bothered to take off his backpack full of bricks. Reinier Gerritsen's show The Last Book, at the Julie Saul Gallery through February 7th, celebrates these underground Abramovics. His photographs, combinations of multiple rapid exposures that bring everyone in the frame into focus, celebrate the diversity of the city's readers and show the still-astonishing ability of the printed word to make the outside world fall away.
