One of the most influential intellectuals of our time (Observer)
About the Author
John Berger was born in London in 1926. His acclaimed works of both fiction and non-fiction include the seminal Ways of Seeing and the novel G., which won the Booker Prize in 1972. In 1962 he left Britain permanently, and he now lives in a small village in the French Alps.

There is some interesting stuff in here, but it is the history and politics that are interesting. It is not really about the photography.
To be totally honest I would describe much of the book, very uncharitably, as "pseudo-intellectual claptrap".
Sorry Mr. Berger, I had expected better.
