Aperture expands its fine reputation with this unique work by photographers from New York at the Seeing with Photography collective, which has been active for over 15 years. Members have varying degrees of sight; one, for instance, says that she sees sunlight and fog. Using a Polaroid to create images by "painting with light" that is, with flashlights these artists produce work that is startlingly original and creative. Their hope is that through this work the sighted will both learn to appreciate their vision and become aware of the talents and self-expression of those whose vision is limited. The images are high-quality, mostly full-page portraits staged with intriguing backgrounds to represent the personality of each photographer. Throughout, faces are often highlighted. The interviews with the photographers add insight into their character and photographic goals, as do the brief biographies and portraits of the artists. The text is in large, easily legible print. Highly recommended for photography, special education, and general collections. Lynetta Alexander, Tennessee State Univ., Nashville

"For the last fifteen years, the energetic group has been making use of tactile and audio markers, flashlights, and long exposure periods in order to create portraits and experimental images on film. In still lifes, portraiture, and nightscapes, Shooting Blind externalizes these artists' inner vision--the result of artistic collaboration, creative invention, and a deep understanding of the behavior of light on form." --DoubleTake

For decades our so called Art World and mainstream Art History merely focus upon 'sophisticated' works and have neglected voices from minorities. The institutionalization of Art (with a capital A) by museum, gallery, collectors, curators and academics have buried the original essential nature of perceptual
experience and creative will.
I treat the photographers in this book a violate act up against the stagnated world. I truly hope the publisher Aperture or other Art dealers not to give a price tag to these honest images and leave them away from the fateful destinations and genres of Postmodern Photography.
