Dark Light: Art of Blind Photographers
- Rated NR
- Genre: Special Interest-Documentary
- Release Date: 2/15/2012
Directed and produced by award-winning photographer/filmmaker Neil Leifer, this 31-minute documentary demonstrates, through an extreme example, how creative people with disabilities are transcending their limitations to create art. The subjects in Dark Light: The Art of Blind Photographers have been drawn to photography for different reasons, whether to create an image for the sighted world that they hold in their mind, or to capture an image experienced through nature (as is the case for one legally-blind scuba diver). As we see, each artist displays a drive and passion to create, and views the medium of photography as an opportunity rather than impossibility. Several professional, sighted photographers are interviewed by Leifer in the film; though each is initially skeptical about the ability of a blind person to take effective photos, they are all eventually swayed by the zeal and brio with which these artists work.
