Novelist, art critic and cultural historian, John Berger is a writer of dazzling eloquence and compelling insight whose work amounts to a subtle and powerful critique of the canons of our civilization. In About Looking examines our role as observers to reveal new levels of meaning in what we see. How do the animals we see in zoos remind us of a relationship between humans and animals that was almost lost in the 20th century? What is it about looking at the war photos that doubles your already strong violence? How do Rodin`s files reveal the threats of clay and flesh to his authority and power? And how does solitude affect Giacometti`s art? By asking these and other questions, Berger silently, but fundamentally, changes the perspective of everyone who reads his work.
