Proof Positive’   Life and Lives through the lens of a blind photographer.

Artist Statement – John Hoerner

Since I lost my peripheral vision quite some years ago I have come to see life through the long lens of tunnel vision.

My camera lens now allows me to see the landscape, the crowded gallery or the face across the room that I cannot otherwise see.

No longer can I seek out the environment of my choice but instead look for images that appeal to my aesthetic sense of the world within the environment in which I find myself.

What I am not is a studio photographer with much practiced skills, a paparazzi or a roving landscape photographer.

I have become an Optical Opportunist – I look for that photographic Carpe Diem like opportunity and endeavour to ‘bottle the moment’.

As I approach my 75th year I am still making and taking images – and I am still here.

That to me is ‘Proof Positive’.
