Ways of Seeing by John Berger

"The way we see things is affected by what we know or what we believe". It's called point of view which I agree with one hundred percent. The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus said "Donkeys prefer garbage to gold". But humans prefer gold to garbage. It matters who the person, animal, alien, is, because we all have different beliefs. I think the great thing about art is that anybody who sees it has an input and can interpret it in their own way that makes it relative to their lives. However, people put these great ideas and theories that are far away from the artists true reason being the art. For example, some people say that a picture of fruit is amazing, and a new twist to fruit, but what if the artist was just really passionate about fruit?
