When I look at the photo, should I say

The man at this photo is reading the book


The man at this photo reads the book


You would always use "in" to describe the location of the person in the photo, but yes. Either "The man in this photo is reading the book" or "The man in this photo reads the book" are valid. The first construction would be more common.

  • I would say it would be more common to say "the man in the photo is reading a book". – pboss3010 Jan 24 '19 at 15:08
  • I think the difference between using "this" or "the" in this case is probably irrelevant to the question at hand... – Tom Brendlinger Jan 25 '19 at 16:16
