Once in Europaby John Berger and Patricia Macdonald
Synopses & Reviews
Berger's modern classic updated with glorious photos.
John Berger has spent a lifetime experimenting with new ways of storytelling, often using both words and images as in books such as Another Way of Telling and A Fortunate Man, where he worked with photographer Jean Mohr, and in his world-renowned Ways of Seeing. Now, together with artist-photographer Patricia MacDonald, the beautiful love story found in his earlier collection, Once in Europa, is retold, in an emotionally and visually stunning combination. Macdonald's powerful images, made from the air and close to the ground, and containing many layers of meaning, create a landscape and a weather for this contemporary classic.
