“There aren't any images that are denied. All pictures have the prestige of truth. what's to be tested is in what method images can and can't supply desiring to facts.” With those phrases, of our so much considerate and eloquent interrogators of the visible supply a unique meditation at the ambiguities of what's doubtless our basic paintings form.
 
As built by means of John Berger and the popular Swiss photographer Jean Mohr, that concept comprises photos in addition to phrases; not just research, yet anecdote and memoir. Another manner of Telling explores the stress among the photographer and the photographed, among the image and its audience, among the filmed second and the stories that it so resembles. Combining the ethical imaginative and prescient of the critic and the sensible engagement of the photographer, Berger and Moher have produced a piece that expands the frontiers of feedback first charged by means of Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes, and Susan Sontag.

There were enough for a front page or a double-spread. Having dispatched them, I continued my slow, fascinating journey. When finally I arrived home, I didn’t expect to be congratulated – there is no such thing as congratulation in the world of photo agencies – but I did expect to find a little money in payment for my published pictures. I was quickly disabused. ‘We could scarcely use a picture. You chose to show Tito as a head of state looking human, even friendly. Yet Tito is a communist, and the newspaper editors here, who buy our pictures, have a very clear idea of what a communist head of state looks like.

Yes, he existed too, and I took his picture. Market-gardener: It makes me think of someone who’s looking for the best place to take a photo! He enjoys nature. He’s a modern type who likes to get out of the city. He looks elsewhere for what he can’t find at home. Clergyman: Tomorrow belongs to the young! An image of hope. His face and his shirt are touching. I have to stop myself saying: Spring! Schoolgirl: A bloke in a tree which is in flower. He’s hiding and playing. And he wants to show to somebody that he’s hiding.

The people are thin. Weary. And the pipes go on and on. Into the distance. Factory worker: What’s flowing along those pipes? Water or fuel? From the way he’s sleeping, it looks as though he’s earned the right to sleep well. What was happening: Ponai, thirty kilometres from Bombay. Water pipes taking water to the city. The boy had gone to sleep on the pipes because they were cool. A FRAMED PORTRAIT OF A WOODCUTTER One day the woodcutter’s wife stopped in the village and said: ‘I’d like to ask you a favour.
