15 Ways of Seeing: Light

By Madeline Yates - 2 min read

Inspired by John Berger's 1972 book 'Ways of Seeing,' our '15 Ways of Seeing' series is an invitation to see the world differently. Each week, we highlight one theme with 15 photos. This week we showcase the beauty of light and all the ways in which it can be interpreted.


“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.”
