Blind Photographers Guild
The Blind Photographers’ Guild is a small group of accomplished blind photographers. The Guild’s main goal is to place blind photographers and their work in the mainstream of visual culture. The group’s central premise is that blind photographers intrinsically operate at the ground zero of photography. Blind photographers by definition produce inherently conceptual photographs. The best among them make world-class work that explores the difference between true inner vision and mere outward sight. These artists force consideration of a surprising thesis -- blind photographers possess the clearest vision on the planet. "Heaven gives its glimpses only to those not in a position to look too close," writes the poet Robert Frost. The visionary members of the Guild achieve their goals through the production, exhibition, publication, and sales of high level photographic art. En route, they attempt to aid the cause of the blind community. Douglas McCulloh.
