“The way I observe comes naturally to me as a curious person – I’m like la vigie – the look-out guy on a boat who does small jobs, maybe such as shovelling stuff into a boiler, but I’m no navigator – absolutely the opposite. I wander around the boat, find odd places – the masts, the gunwale – and then simply look out at the ocean. Being aware of travelling has nothing to do with being a navigator.” (John Berger, October 2016)
