“I am the mechanical eye. I the machine show you the world as only I can see it.” – Dziga Vertov
- An investigation into the elements of looking, combining art and science and painting a portrait of our culture, by the critically acclaimed writer and filmmaker, Mark Cousins.
- In The Story of Looking, Mark Cousins takes us on a lightning-bright tour – in words and images – through how our looking selves develop over the course of a lifetime, and the ways that looking has changed over the centuries.
- From great works of art to holiday photos, from cityscapes to cinema, through science and history, protest and propaganda, and the refusal to look, this book illuminates how we construct as well as receive the things we see.
