"an acrobat balances on a column of chairs. a passer-by takes in the spectacle from above, mirroring the acrobat’s posture. the column of chairs a paralleled by a leafless civic tree, and the public looks on, represented by a sampling of varied hats and coats — wintry weather, confirmed by a fractional snowscape to the right. it’s another kertészian cross-section, all done with simplifications: a man in black, a man in white, and a set of headgear." — how to read a photograph; p. 140
