Jessica Jones

Jessica used to be involved with Seeing With Photography several years ago. She is featured in a new documentary called "Going Blind".

This picture I made  years ago, on Jessica's first day spent with our group, a very emotional one for her as she realized that being recently, and suddenly blind, didn't mean the end of her making art. Jessica joined us accompanied be her newly hired guide and she stumbled badly trying to negotiate the new spaces. She had, like Mike McGarvey, Mark Andres and myself, studied art, and was a serious photographer and art teacher before her eyesight very suddenly went. The strip of white at the left is a part of an arm cast from an injury.
