An early influence on my ways of thinking about photography on a deeper level was the great writer John Berger.  A poet, novelist, artist screenwriter and more, Berger,  born in 1926, and died just a few weeks ago, in January of 2017 at the age of 90. A read of Berger’s work gives great insight into what meaning we derive from looking, seeing and photographing.
