Six Remarkable Images from Blind Photographers
The following six images are taken from the excellent 30-minute documentary short Dark Light:The Art of Blind Photographers, which premieres Wednesday November 17 at 8:00PM on HBO2 (see our review here). The three featured photographers are:
Henry Butler, the New Orleans jazz piano great, who has been blind since infancy and photographs according to the vibrations he believes everything gives off,
Pete Eckert, who lost his sight mid-life and uses a Braille meter to create photographs based completely on mental images, and
Bruce Hall, an underwater photographer with severely limited eyesight, who also extensively photographs his twin autistic sons.
