The Story of Looking sees Mark Cousins prepare for surgery to restore his vision, revealing how looking makes us who we are. In a personal meditation on the power of looking in his own life, he guides us through a kaleidoscope of extraordinary imagery across cultures and eras, showing how looking lies at the heart of human experience, empathy, discovery and thought.
