Understanding a Photograph

by John Berger - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Penguin Classics) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141392028 | ISBN 10: 0141392029

John Berger's writings on photography are some of the most original of the twentieth century. This selection contains many groundbreaking essays and previously uncollected pieces written for exhibitions and catalogues in which Berger probes the work of photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and W. Eugene Smith - and the lives of those photographed - with fierce engagement, intensity and tenderness.
 
The selection is made and introduced by Geoff Dyer, author of the award-winning The Ongoing Moment.
 
How do we see the world around us? This is one of a number of pivotal works by creative thinkers whose writings on art, design and the media have changed our vision for ever.
