The Blind Photographer

By Rothenstein, Julian (Editor)

NY: Princeton Architectural Press, 2016. First edition. Hard cover. Published NY: Princeton Architectural Press, 2016, first printing. 4to., 8 3/4" x 12", 210pp., illustrated with color photographs. The photographs in this revelatory book suggest a deeper truth: that blindness is itself a kind of seeing, and that those who can see are often blind to the strangeness and beauty of the world around them. As the blind photographer Evgen Bavcar writes, "Photography must belong to the blind, who in their daily existence have learned to become the masters of camera obscura." Through the photographs of more than fifty blind or partially sighted people from around the world, this exhilarating book—the first to explore this phenomenon in all its vibrancy and diversity—will make you see differently. Minor tenderness at corners, else fine. . 1st. Hard. Near Fine/No Jacket, As Issued. 4to.

In Carlo Rocchi Bilancini’s photographs, some of these people finally surface. Untouched by their underwater ordeal, they continue their subacqueous activities as if nothing had happened." Fine.
