The short film “Blindsight” examines the photographic imagination of the members of the Seeing With Photography Collective in New York City. While all the members were sighted at one time, they are all now blind or visually impaired.

The results are transformative, for the members and for the viewer, tangible proof of how creativity enhances life and gives power.
