Visually Impaired Artists Find Their Vision Through the Lens

 - May 12, 2009

The University of California at Riverside has recently featured an exhibit on blind photographers and the result is inspirational as well as mind-boggling. The exhibit features many different photographers, all of which are visually disabled in varying degrees.

The most interesting aspect of this genre of photography may just be the process that these artists go through in order to create these rich images. Pete Eckert, the photographer of photos 5 and 6, leaves his camera on a tripod and experiments with exposure times and movement of light. Conversely, Kurt Weston, who took pictures 2 and 3, scans the faces of his muses.

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think these particular blind photographers' photos are worth far more.
