In Memory of Ben Paige

Looking at Death”, Benjamin Paige with SWPC members, 2003

Yesterday I learned Ben Paige had passed away after a long illness.
Ben was with the Seeing With Photography Collective for many years. He was a determined photographer who was an inspiration. Ben created many memorable and wonderful images,  despite his total blindness.  Ben sometimes showed up tired -but full of ideas and enough energy to work, even though earlier in the day, he had to undergo kidney dialysis. You can experience some of Ben's work here...

 Read Ben's own words as he relates his experiences with our art group. I interviewed Ben in 2006. "Italics " are my own words.
