Ways of Seeing - John Berger

This quote was added by user55001
Images were first made to conjure up the appearances of something that was absent. Gradually, it became evident that an image could outlast what it represented; it then showed how something or somebody had once looked - and thus by implication how the subject had once been seen by other people. Later still the specific vision of the image-maker was also recognized as part of the record.
