John Berger: Understanding a Photograph

16,95

Contains essays and previously uncollected pieces written for exhibitions and catalogues in which Berger probes the work of photographers such as W. Eugene Smith and many others – and the lives of those photographed – with fierce engagement, intensity and tenderness.

Understanding a Photograph is arranged chronologically, leading the reader on a thought-provoking journey through selected essays from hallmark works such as About Looking and Another Way of Telling, as well as previously uncollected pieces written for exhibitions or catalogs, that discuss a wide range of artists—from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Jitka Hanzlová. This collection of nearly twenty-five pieces has been carefully selected by novelist and essayist Geoff Dyer, who also wrote a critical study of Berger’s oeuvre.
