"Readers, men and women, young and older, read in the street, in the subway, in a park, in a plane, and many other places. Some places are unusual and some are common. They read newspapers, paperbacks, magazines, advertisements, travel guides, and maps... alone or in a group."

Mathieu Do Duc presents to us a series of photographs that reveals his love of reading and his gratefulness to those who helped him grow up as a reader, an artist and a person. He shows us the place books hold in his life and in his artistic work. Above all he proves to us that while reading seems mundane, it has never actually been such.

Mathieu Do Duc is also a high school teacher. He meets a lot of students who never read. For them, reading is source of discomfort or disgust. Reading At All Costs is a response to those students that are tired of hearing that they must read. The artist likes to think that reading is useless and that is precisely the reason why it is interesting.
