I was going through some old images and ran across this one! The image was taken at Northern State Hospital in April 2013 and Dev was reading Catcher In The Rye…sometimes, just sometimes, my kidlets CAN be good models! Okay, truth be told, Dev is perhaps the only one out of the lot who is willing to model for me (whew). 🙂

  1. The light is quite spell-binding in this photo! No doubt he’s loving ‘Catcher’. Salinger’s short stories were always a favourite of mine as a teen. (Funny how we’ve all veered off course to talk about J.D.!)

  2. Great photograph. I read ‘Catcher in the Rye’ in high school, and then all of JD Salinger’s other works when I was in college (not for school, but on my own).

  3. Very nice shot. Knowing he was along on one of your shoots, there are some subtexts here too, lots of unanswered questions (based on my experience of teenagers) – is he patient, bored, posing? What does he do while you take pictures. What is the attraction of going with you?

  4. Wonderful shot. Moody. A lot going on, but nothing happening. I also love that I see hands – hands are what I notice most about people…and they’re captured so naturally here! One of my favorites of yours that I’ve seen!

  5. Looks like the copy I read about 53 years ago. Great ‘coming of age’ book. When I think of ‘Catcher in the Rye’, I remember the (American) attempts to ban the book. The following report is an interesting statistic of the book. Pamela Hunt Steinle writes in In Cold Fear, “by 1981 Catcher had the dubious distinction of being at once the most frequently censored book across the country and the second most frequently taught novel in the public schools.” And Americans still claim to be the freest country in the world. If they only knew how even their news is heavily censored for political gain or suppression.
