Cataract: Some notes after having a cataract removed by John Berger, published by Notting Hill Editions

Selçuk Demirel's drawing for John Berger's essay, Cataract

There’s a poetic irony in John Berger – famous for ‘seeing’ art – losing his vision… a situation not lost on the art critic whose recent book consists of notes exploring his experience, and uses artwork to explore the themes.  Illustrated by the Turkish artist Selçuk Demirel, Cataract journeys through the physicality of vision and non-vision with text and line drawings. Cataract is published by the nonfiction publisher, Notting Hill Editions.
