The Blind Photographer


Evgen Bavcar is an art photographer and he is completely blind. Born in 1946 in a small Slovenian town near Venice, he lost both eyes before he was twelve in two consecutive accidents. Four years later, he lay his hands on a camera for the first time, to take a snapshot of the girl with whom he was in love. As he recalls: "The pleasure I felt then resulted from my having robbed and fixed on a film something that did not belong to me, I secretly discovered I could possess something that I could not see."
Interestingly, Evgene Bavcar wears spectacles.
