The Blind Photographer

38,60

This exhilarating book will open your eyes. It is the first to explore the worldwide phenomenon of the blind and partially-sighted who take up photography in all its vibrancy and diversity and showcases brilliant work from Mexico, India, China, the UK and elsewhere.

With over 150 striking photographs, many accompanied by the photographers own words, we encounter the paradox that it is sight itself that seems sharpened by blindness.

“The best thing to do with stereotypes and pre-conceptions is to challenge them, and this book The Blind Photographer does just that. It breaks down barriers from both sides, and shows what can be achieved if you turn your back on the doubters and just follow your dreams. Visions are not seen purely by the eyes but through the spirit.”
STEVIE WONDER

Published to coincide with an exhibition during Les Rencontres d’Arles photography festival in July, and events at the Photographers Gallery in London in September 2016.

Description

Martin Parr writes:

“A revelation….. They capture a feeling about the world and their relationship to it through photography which is often as elegant and compelling as sighted photographers. It is not only a great surprise but very life assuring.”
