Gerardo Nigenda,
Entre lo invisible y lo tangible, llegando a la homeostasis emocional
Born in Oaxaca, Mexico, the 42-year-old Nigenda calls his images “Fotos cruzados,” or “intersecting photographs.” As he shoots, he stays aware of sounds, memories, and other sensations. Then he uses a Braille writer to punch texts expressing those the things he felt directly into the photo. The work invokes an elegant double blindness: Nigenda needs a sighted person to describe the photo, but the sighted rely on him to read the Braille. The title of this work translates roughly to: “Between the invisible and the tangible, reaching an emotional homeostasis.”

Rosita McKenzie, Calton Hill
The photographs of this Scottish artist are imbued with the freedom that comes from not seeing. Rather, her inspiration is triggered by non-retinal criteria. “I’ll hold my camera at arm’s length, lay it on the ground, hold it overhead,” she says. “I can be experimental because I don’t see. Instead, I sense light on my face. I hear the rustle of the wind in the trees or smell the fragrance of the flowers in the air. People ask me how I compose my shots,” she laughs, “Well, I don’t.”
