Generally people take some time to wrap their brains when it comes to ‘Blind photographers’ concept. Doug McCulloh is not like others; he is a patient man. He prefers chatting when it comes to his new genre that he had worked hard to publicize and define.
Doug McCulloh tells that the big question is why a blind person would take snaps and why would they see even though they can never look at those things.
Different photographer will give different answers. Some of them will call it a political art or even some might share the snap as they see on their mind. Some photographers may do it as a self-empowerment or some may see a friendly message in this.
Pete Eckert, a photographer from Sacramento tells that this is actually a bridge between two worlds. He is attempting to portray a world that other will decode. Photographers may have different reasons but the results can be remarkably different; something like no one have seen before. McCulloh tells that blind photographers do not look at the world like general people. In fact, they do not see the world at all.
Photography has different rules that all the photographers are supposed to follow, but blind people cannot be influenced by that.
For several years, McCulloh has been working with blind photographers and he curated an exhibit in the year 2009 at The California Museum of Photography and now he is bringing those photographers in Naples too.
