Can a blind man take a good photo?

According to Artists Wanted, Pete Eckert certainly can, awarding him with their Grand Prize in 2008. A challenging portrait of disability that has particular currency in light of the reports this week that frontline support services are being cut in the UK.

I wonder how much Pete would be affected if he were living in the UK? I’d like to see the film take a slightly wider view and include his network. He obviously makes great work, however if he can’t see his own images, who gives him feedback? Blindness doesn’t make you imune to professional constructive criticism – and of course we all know this is the only way we improve.
