Publisher's Description

A lavishly illustrated history of photography in essays by the author of Otherwise Known as the Human Condition.

photo-eye's copies are signed on a nameplate provided by the publisher and the writer.

See/Saw shows how photographs frame and change our perspective on the world. Taking in photographers from early in the last century to the present day―including artists such as Eugène Atget, Vivian Maier, Roy DeCarava, and Alex Webb―the celebrated writer Geoff Dyer offers a series of moving, witty, prescient, surprising, and intimate encounters with images.

Dyer has been writing about photography for thirty years, and this tour de force of visual scrutiny and stylistic flair gathers his lively, engaged criticism over the course of a decade. A rich addition to Dyer’s The Ongoing Moment, and heir to Roland Barthes’s Camera Lucida, Susan Sontag’s On Photography, and John Berger’s Understanding a PhotographSee/Saw shows how a photograph can simultaneously record and invent the world, revealing a brilliant seer at work. It is a paean to art and art writing by one of the liveliest critics of our day.
