"Sight Unseen" examines the images and implications of the
world's most accomplished blind photographers. These blind
artists practice a deeply modern photography, an art of idea.
They maintain purely mental galleries of images and then use
cameras and scanners to bring their inner visions into the world
of the sighted. The work is inherently conceptual and operates
beyond the logic of composition and the tyranny of the decisive
moment. Marcel Duchamp wrote of "non-retinal art," art of
concept. These artists practice non-retinal photography. Consequently,
"Sight Unseen" raises core questions about photography,
perception, and mere outward sight versus inner vision.
