The exhibition Blind Visionaries is an impressive multi-media collaboration with the Seeing with Photography Collective, a pioneering group of visually impaired photographers. The collective is a New York based group, their work is a collaboration between visually impaired and sighted photographers using a technique called light painting. The visually impaired or blind photographer works with a photographer assistant and shares what they want to create based on a vision in their mind’s eye.
What results are riveting, surreal images that have helped these seemingly disabled artists to heal through their work. The Collective’s work has been exhibited worldwide and can be seen in the book Shooting Blind published by Aperture.
