Perhaps I am a little 'unfair' in giving John Berger's book 3 star rating, but I was disappointed in that Berger writes more about the political, social, and economic intent and content of photos and their creators than about photography itself, and very little about photography as an established art form. The early essays (the book is chronological and reflects Berger's long career of writing and viewing) are the most academic and acerbic, and in some ways they seem 'soul-less'. The later pieces reflect a mellower, more humane and philosophical expression. Perhaps this kind of life and career developmental progression would true of most of us; indeed hopefully it is. However, it is clear that Berger is regarded, and probably rightly, as a major figure in the literature of photography, and as such the book deserves a place on the shelf of any thoughtful photography student - young or old.
