As constructed by John Berger and Swiss photographer Jean Mohr, two of our most thoughtful and eloquent interrogators of the visual, offer a singular meditation on the ambiguities of what is seemingly our most straightforward art form. This theory includes images as well as words; not only analysis, but anecdote and memoir. Another Way of Telling explores the tensions between the photographer and the photographed, between the picture and its viewers, between the filmed moment and the memories that it so resembles. Combining the moral vision of the critic and the practical engagement of the photographer, Berger and Mohr have produced a work that expands the frontiers of criticism first charged by Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes, and Susan Sontag.
