Kurt Weston is a legally blind creative photographer. At a very young age Kurt Weston was fascinated by photography. "I remember I had a huge collage of photographs I had cut out of old National Geographic and Life magazines. It took up practically an entire wall in my bedroom. I used to lie in bed at night dreaming of the day I could be a photographer."

Weston is the winner of the international contest “Transformations”, and he has exhibited his work in places as prestigious as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington, DC.  His work reflects the struggle, stress, and tragedy of losing his sight, as well as the inspiration of vision beyond sight.

In 2012, the CAC grant helped pay for the framing of 31 photographs for a solo art exhibit at the Newport Beach Environmental Nature Center as well as an artist talk on the healing powers of nature. As a result of this exhibit 7 pieces of his artwork were sold for a total of $850. In 2013 he was supported to bring 23 original artworks for a solo exhibit at the John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California where hundreds of people were able to view his artwork between January 8, 2014 and February 13, 2014.
