Teju Cole's 'Blind Spot:' What's missing when we look at the world?

Hosted by

Nigerian-American writer Teju Cole has a new book out called “Blind Spot.” It features hundreds of images -- spanning from Lagos to Berlin to Brooklyn -- with essays on what’s visible and invisible in the photos. Many of the photos don’t include people -- just traces of them.
