A new edition of John Berger and Jean Mohr's classic investigation into the nature of photography and what makes it so different from other art forms
John Berger was born in London in 1926. His many books, innovative in form and far-reaching in their historical and political insight, include the Booker Prize-winning novel G, To the Wedding and King. Amongst his outstanding studies of art and photography are The Success and Failure of Picasso, About Looking and the internationally acclaimed Ways of Seeing. He lives and works in a small village in the French Alps, the setting for his trilogy Into Their Labours (Pig Earth, Once in Europa and Lilac and Flag). Jean Mohr was born in Geneva in 1925. A documentary photographer who has worked with many of the world's leading humanitarian organisations, he has collaborated with John Berger on a number of projects including A Fortunate Man and The Seventh Man.
