I express my love of art with this video:

The video says about itself:

John Berger / Ways of Seeing, Episode 1 (1972)

A BAFTA award-winning BBC series with John Berger, which rapidly became regarded as one of the most influential art programmes ever made. In the first programme, Berger examines the impact of photography on our appreciation of art from the past.

Ways of Seeing is a 1972 BBC four-part television series of 30-minute films created chiefly by writer John Berger and producer Mike Dibb. Berger’s scripts were adapted into a book of the same name. The series and book criticize traditional Western cultural aesthetics by raising questions about hidden ideologies in visual images. The series is partially a response to Kenneth Clark‘s Civilisation series, which represents a more traditionalist view of the Western artistic and cultural canon.

My nominees:

1. ChasingART

2. lekmann

3. Being Avril E Jean, Artist

Here is what Shaun, the creator of the award, had to say about it:

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family”. I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”.

I do feel that WordPress has given me a new online “Family” and I am proud to nominate the following members of my family for this award:

1. The shadows of a dream

2. larondedelivres

3. jamoroki

4. Something there is…
