Ways of Seeing: Based on the BBC Television Series (A pelican original)
by John Berger
Publisher's Description
A group of seven essays, four in words and images and three in pictures alone, designed to provoke inquiry into the ways in which we see and how we interpret visual information, both intellectually and psychologically. Designed to reflect in their form the arguments made in their "text," the essays raise even more questions than they begin to answer, making the book a catalyst for thought on the nature of vision, the portrayal of women in art and advertising, and the loading of images with significance over the centuries, among other things. A development and continuance of the BBC television series of the same name, Ways of Seeing is a fascinating exploration of seeing and thinking.
