Ways of Seeing by John Berger

Donated by Kate Raworth, who says...

I read this book as I walked the heady streets of Manhattan in 1997 and it captivated me – opening my eyes to the politics of consumerism, possession, and the objectification of women in art and fashion.

It also convinced me that pictures are just as powerful as words in telling a story and shaping our minds – an insight that deeply guides the way I think today.

It’s my favourite book to give away. I always keep a spare copy at home, ready on my shelves, for the next person I think its message will delight, enrage, and politicise.
