By simply learning how to look at the world around us more creatively we can experience life more fully, David Finn assures us. In this newest title in Abrams' popular "How to Look at..". series, the acclaimed photographer reveals -- in a charming, intimate, conversational text and evocative photographs -- how to develop an enriched way of seeing.

Writing on such themes as "the mind's eye", "the gift of light", and "forms that shape our lives", Finn, who has authored three previous titles in the "How to Look at..". series, implores readers to experience the world visually with sensitivity, imagination, and passion. He shares his own personal view of how to enjoy more intensely the pleasures that make life truly worth living: beautiful sights, fascinating objects, shared experiences, and warm companionship.
