Skylight Books Online Event

May 10 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Geoff Dyer has been writing about photography for thirty years, and See/Saw, a 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 Photograph, See/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.

Geoff Dyer is the recipient of a Lannan Literary Award, the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. He lives in Los Angeles and teaches at the University of Southern California.

This event will take place live on Crowdcast. RSVP here to join the livestream or watch the replay.
