Why did I take pictures of women in high-heeled shoes and lingerie, and sculpt these images into a second project? Because it’s beautiful imagery. It’s imagery that’s real in a sighted world. When one blind proofreader ‘saw’ the picture of the high-heeled shoes, he/she couldn’t believe that this footwear actually exists. Same with the underwire bra. I find it so amazing that items and images that are a part of day to day living for those of us with sight, have not yet been invented for those who cannot see.
