“Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he is a visual person, he just can’t see.
Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of Artists Wanted: Exposure 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.”
I’m not sure which is more impressive; the fact that Eckert is a blind photographer, or the fact that he is a skilled blind photographer.
I really appreciated Eckert’s work when I initially viewed it — especially his use of long exposures.
