The Reader portrays a moment of pure escapism. With the girl in the yellow dress as the protagonist, this piece alludes to the fact that reading can be a fully immersive experience; read anything and allow yourself to imagine brave new worlds.
Working predominantly from photographs and magazines, Anika Manuel's subject matter focuses on people, depicting them sometimes as a form of social commentary, other times presenting them exactly as they are, for the viewer to imbue with their own ideas. Recycling imagery is important to her general concerns, as there already exist so many undervalued images which haven’t yet been fully explored.
