  Dark Light: The Art of Blind Photographers

Sensory Input
"Let's face it," says Henry Butler. "Everything is just vibrations."  
And by everything, he means just that---sound and heat, light and color. 
A musician and photographer based in New Orleans, Butler pays close 
attention to vibrations in order to do his work. "I want to know the 
color scheme," he says, as his companion describes the scene around 
them, "What nature is surrounding the objects that we may be looking at. 
I want to know about distance. I want to know about sun." And he wants 
to know the people. Interacting with them via his camera, Butler enjoys 
the improvisation, as much a part of photography as the jazz piano he 
likes to play. Sometimes, he admits, his subjects are surprised. "Yeah," 
he smiles at one man. "It's a blind man taking your picture."
