Always worth reading, even if one doesn't always agree, his viewpoint is thoughtful and thought provoking. Worth dipping into his earlier works

Love Berger 24 Mar 2014
By G. Coan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As with all his books Berger is insightful and his writing makes my brain work. A must have for all photographers and visual artists.

It's quite out of date now - but that said a good piece of historical writing.
Not so useful for current students who have no perspective on this history.
Another must have for photographers 20 May 2014

Eloquent journal for the photo enthusiast. I enjoyed it, a keepsake for the library, and it makes a great gift.

Understand what 12 April 2014
By kk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While I try to understand a photograph by reading this book, I fail to understand John Berger in many of the essaies. It is a book about John rather than about photographs. If you want to know him better, read hard but I won't guarantee success.
