Filmmaker and painter Hugues de Montalembert was blinded in an attack in his home in New York in 1978. His memoir Invisible, is a meditation on what it means to see and be seen. In it he reveals his approach to life, and how he learned to navigate the streets of Manhattan and, soon after, Bali and Greenland, with confidence.
