Why Look at Animals?

John Berger
Penguin Random House
11 × 18 cm
112 pp
Arts Writing, Criticism, Theory

John Berger broke new ground with his penetrating writings on life, art and how we see the world around us. Here he explores how the ancient relationship between man and nature has been broken in the modern consumer age, with the animals that used to be at the centre of our existence now marginalized and reduced to spectacle.

Republished in the Penguin Great Ideas Series.
