Listen to the observations and musings of Geoff Dyer, award-winning novelist, essayist, critic, and author, most recently of The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand, as he considers photographs in the exhibition Brought to Light: Revelatory Photographs in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Collection. Let his plummy British tones be the voice inside your head as you walk through the galleries or listen to them here.
