French artist and photographer Patrick Tosani did a series of portraits in 1985 where portraits were painted onto surfaces of embossed braille-like patterns, and the faces were blurred and obscured. For me, my interpretation of these pieces refer to my inspiration of the blind, representing the obscurity and fogginess of sight for the visually impaired, yet the braille represent how they experience the world and communicate through their own personal language and community.
