From Sunday Morning, 10:35 am on 29 October 2017

Is there something about act of wearing sunglasses that is an extension of yourself? Dr Vanessa Brown, senior lecturer in design and visual culture at Nottingham Trent University, says taking away access to people's eyes is one of the key techniques many famous men and women employ, partly to maintain our attention. Dr Brown's spent many years researching why we wear sunglasses - and has also written a book about it - Cool Shades, the History and Meaning of Sunglasses.
