Show Details

Through My Lens is a new intimate work by theatre artist Amy Amantea that combines conversation, hospitality and portraiture.

Amy is an artist with a lived experience of blindness, specifically having a total of 2% vision in one eye. She is also a photographer with a practice that involves walking the city at twilight looking for interesting light patterns and capturing them with her camera.

Through My Lens brings these life experiences into one small photography studio where Amantea shares her work as a photographer with a single participant who then describes her images—images she has never “seen”—back to her. The photos reveal themselves in accordance with the conversation and open up new realms of perception—a reciprocal collision of visual and non-visual experiences.
