Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Opening Up Your Eyes To Reality I read this book for my popular culture class. The book is a fast read, with lots of pictures as well. It's filled with essays on how popular culture and the media, as well as advertising influences our perception on reality and how we are blind to certain things. There is also some history on art and media as well. For a fast read, this book will change your outlook on life by realizing the pressure of consumption within the capitalist economic system. This book is recommended for ages 16+. Be aware that there is also some nude pictures within the book as well.

His first novel, "A Painter of Our Time", was published in 1958, & since then his books have included the novel "G.", which won the Booker Prize in 1972. In 1962 he left Britain permanently, & he now lives in a small village in the French Alps.

From Our Editors

Although we use language to interpret and express the world around us, we see in images, not words. Ways of Seeing brings together seven essays on the process of sight-interpretation, four of which use both words and images, and three of which are purely visual. From traditional variations in oil painting to different ways of envisioning and portraying women, this work explores our relationship with our strongest and most immediate method of perception.
