Another Way of Telling.
In this book Berger works with photographer Jean Mohr to critique the ways that photographs may tell a story. He uses both words and images to defend his arguments as an art critic. This book is especially relevant to this unit in its discussions on photographer and subject, photograph and viewer and between a "moment" and a "memory". This book applies directly to the work of Dawoud Bey.
