Taking photos as a blind photographer I view as a fishing trip. Let me tell you a little story as an analogy. When you go fly fishing the whole environment is investigated; you learn about the life cycle of the fishes’ favorite food. You learn the habits of the fish and their fears. You learn to cast and play with very nicely made tools. Then if you are lucky and skilled you catch a fish. You touch it briefly as you unhook it and let it go. The satisfaction is the confirmation. You learned enough to do the job. You saw past the pretty stream to the fish and bugs. This is what taking photos is for me. I can't see my own work. But I see it better than sighted viewers do in galleries. I know exactly what I produce. It is a fish I let slip into the stream of the sighted world. The water is the barrier between my view of the world and those who have sight. My vision is slower with sound but no less clear.
