Blind Photographer, The
(50 items available)
The photographs in this revelatory book suggest a deeper truth: blindness is itself a kind of seeing, and those who can see are often blind to the strangeness and beauty of the world around them. An unprecedented presentation of work by blind photographers from all over the world, with texts by the photographers and other writers, including as a unique feature a section of tactile relief diagrams, parallel to selected photographs, for the benefit of blind readers as well as the sighted. As the blind photographer Evgen Bavcar writes, 'Photography must belong to the blind, who in their daily existence have learned to become the masters of camera obscura.' Through the photographs of more than fifty blind or partially sighted people from around the world, this exhilarating book - the first to explore this phenomenon in all its vibrancy and diversity - will make you see differently.
