Fantasy Photography

Fantasy

Art critic, novelist, painter and poet, John Berger published his book ʻWays of Seeingʼ in 1972, an adaptation of his previous BBC four-part television series of thirty minute films, created by Berger and produced by Mike Dibb. This photo series was taken in accompaniment to a publication created in response to the traditional Western culture of public imagery and its impact on society, and particularly his section on advertising. The publication is a reflection on his writing and the core ideas thatʼ ʻWays of seeingʼ generates, which this photo series explores.
