Photos by Blind Photographers
Annie Hesse, Eiffel Tower
A perpetual wanderer, Hesse has lived all over the world, a camera never far from her side. She says that she sees "rough impressions, like Matisse at his vaguest" and only with one eye. She makes photos based on hunch, conjecture and curiosity. "In the chaos of a foreign place," she says, "I might be attracted to something about the color, or the sound, or vague forms. I'll be right in front of it and not know what it is. So I'll capture it. Later, I use the picture to figure out what it was that I saw."
