Pete Eckert is blind, totally blind. But his disability (if you can call it that) hasn’t stopped him from expressing himself visually. As Pete explains in the video above, he has always been a visual person. And photography has become more than a creative outlet for Pete. It’s a personal form of artistic expression, the way he sees the world through sound.
Eckert was named the Grand Prize recipient of Artists Wanted: Exposure in 2008, an international photography competition. You can learn more about Pete Eckert in this video and on his web page.
