From 2012–2014, Schneider photographed and filmed 100 female artists, writers, curators, and musicians in their own homes or studios as they read a book of their choosing by a woman writer. These sessions resulted in 100 photographic portraits and a 4-hour film, which show the readers at the moments they are the most immersed in their selected texts.
