In The Story of Looking, filmmaker and writer 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 through the centuries. From great works of art to tourist photographs, from cityscapes to cinema, through science and protest, propaganda and refusals to look, the false mirrors and great visionaries of looking, this book illuminates both how we construct, as well as how we receive the things we see.
The book is packed with beautiful photographs and fine art images, showcasing the variety of content in the Bridgeman archive. From vintage photographs to masterpieces of fine art and artifacts from the ancient world, it really is a feast for the eyes.
