Underground New York Public Library

I came across this article about New York photographer Ourit Ben Haim’s project photographing people reading books on the New York Subway.  Her blog is http://undergroundnewyorkpubliclibrary.com/.  If you click on any of the photos, you’ll get taken to her Flickr collection.  Some of these are really terrific.  I particularly like this one.

It’s cool that reading, even if it’s moving to e-readers these days, is still such a prevalent subway activity. And as the article notes, seeing what people are reading opens up the possibility of a connection with another person.
