Prize-Winning Photographer is Completely Blind

(Video Link)

Peter Eckert lost his sight as an adult, but that didn't stop him from becoming an accomplished, professional photographer. He won the grand prize at Artists Wanted: Exposure 2008, an international exhibition. In the above short film about his work, Eckert says:

My blindness -- while it might be a curiosity and it's kind of a hook on some of my work and stuff -- I try to stand on the work, not on the idiosyncrasy of my disability.

I think I just went blind looking at those pictures. That's like making movies with a security camera. Just set up the camera, let it film for 2 hours, then show your movie.

The shots create themselves, but blurry images are blurry images. It's good for him as a hobby, but not exactly "Wow! What a amazing picture" territory.
