Oculist Witness by Hiroshi Sugimoto is part of LIZWORKS’ 'Seeing The World Through Artists’ Eyes’ project. Each artist was asked to design sunglasses that reflected their perspective on the world in combination with their unique style. Oculist Witness was designed in collaboration with Hiroshi Sugimoto and Lizworks and produced by Selima Optique.
