Retinitis pigmentosa, as interpreted by photographer Bård Ek.
I visited a beautiful photo exhibition yesterday, titled “More Than Nothing” (Mer enn ingenting). The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted has gotten 18 of Norway’s best photographers to interpret the most common eye conditions. The purpose is to show both what it’s like to be visually impaired, and to inform about the different conditions.
The photographers have interviewed persons with these conditions and then tried to what the world looks like through their eyes. All the photos can be seen on the exhibition website (only Norwegian text). Browse by clicking on the photographer’s names on the left.
