2009–2010

On Reading is a photographic project with Anja Schaffner, documenting John Morgan studio publications in the context in which they’re read, alongside the artists, authors, clients and publishers associated with us from 2009 to 2010. The series celebrates the wider culture of people and places with whom we have collaborated. The title refers to André Kertész’s book of photographs, On Reading, which brings together people from all walks of life engaged in the act of reading.
