Being Blind

Hugues de Montalembert.

A French artist who lost his sight in New York, 1978.

Read his book entitled ‘Invisible’ (2010). New York. Simon and Schuster. You would find in it more than what I can express in a blogpost. You will need to step into it yourself…the experience of being blind.

Other references (if you can access other French sources, it would no doubt provide a fuller picture. Perhaps YouTube would offer other pieces of evidence and details):
