's review

really liked it

John Berger brings a new perspective to the reader on the known and conspicuous changes that have occurred due to the advent of digital photography and printing, how it has taken a toll on the viewership of original paintings. This book is a continuation of his BBC TV series 'The Way of Series'. The book and show raise many interesting topics like the idea behind the portrayal of a woman in western paintings, the idea of possession and how it got represented in western paintings, etc.

Definitely worth a read. But please watch the TV series before it.
