15 Ways of Seeing: Silence

By Rocío - 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 silence and all the ways in which it can be interpreted.


“Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.”

– Pablo Neruda
