Photographer from the rearPete Eckert became blind as an adult with retinitis pigmentosa.  He didn't let that interfere with his passion for photography, sculpture, and industrial design.  After losing his sight he actually expanded his art, shooting ethereal double exposures and vivid light paintings with his Mamiyaflex TLR. camera.  Since he was once sighted, h can visualize the image he wants to create in his mind and uses his other senses of sound, touch, and memory to make a photograph. "I am a visual person. I just can't see," he says.
