The Blind Photographer

Julian Rothenstein, Mel Gooding (Editors)

Introduction by Candia McWilliam  

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.

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.

Published in association with Los Ojos que Sienten (Mexico)
