And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief As Photos

Berger, John

And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief As Photos - New ed. - England; Bloomsbury; 2005 - 101 Pages; Paperback

"When John Berger wrote this apparently unclassifiable book, it was to become a sensation, translated into nine languages and indelible from the minds of those who read it. This stunning work is a shoebox filled with delicate love letters containing poetry and thoughts on mortality, art, love and absence, capturing moments in time that hover above Berger's surprising landscapes. From his lyrical description of the works of Caravaggio and profound explorations of death and immigration to the sight of some lilac at dusk in the mountains, this is a beautiful and most intimate response to the world around us."
