The Mind Reader

This piece is about absorbing things in life around you. Taking in what is important and learning from it. Normally, people study and "pour over their books". In this image, life and knowledge (the books) are coming to you. We learn from other people or even from our own mistakes. You cannot read about everyday life. You have to live it, experience it and make yourself a better person from it. It is not something that can be taught to you. If you are open minded, it will come to you, like the gentleman in the image who has opened his mind. The library was taken at a private men’s club in Uptown Manhattan and the building underneath was shot in Paris.
