DESCRIPTION

In these stark and powerful portraits of blind children in Mexico City, Jed Fielding, a Chicago-based photographer, finds an aesthetic that would have us question our very notions of beauty, as well as our concepts of vision and the role of spectator.  These poignant photographs are the result of a close and intimate collaboration with children at schools for the blind whose instructions were often as simple as “look at me.”
