Hi there. My name is Curtis Ruttle I am a blind photographer.
A little background about myself – I’m visually impaired. I have 10% vision and i have aniridia (the loss of the iris coloured part of the eye), nystagmus (the back and forth rapid movement of the eyes)
Last year in school I took a photography class as a option and I absolutely fell in love with it. Yes, I had taken photos before but I never saw it in the same way. I didn’t understand all the concepts of photography, ever since that i cannot stop taking photos, I just see things in such different ways now.
I always say that I see things like a camera would, I can envision how it will look on a camera and that makes it even more spectacular. Yes I am visually impaired but that doesn’t stop me, I love to take photos and share my story with people.
I never really describe or explain my photos because everyone sees things differently, everyone will always determine or view your work differently than you have. I like to leave it up to others to get what they get from it themselves.
Here are several photos I really loved and thought I’d share.
