Daily: RIP John Berger

John Berger, one of the most influential critics and theorists of our time passed away yesterday. Berger is credited with, and certainly many of us would agree, with helping the world to truly see.

Hyperallergic did a nice write-up about Berger and included links to several videos, including the four-part BBC series that informed his instrumental collection of essays of the same name, Ways of Seeing. I feel like it might be time for a re-read…and it’s definitely worth taking two hours to watch the series.

Only two days into the new year and we’ve already lost a great one.
