Jane Evelyn Atwood is an independent photographer. She’s been working for quite some time developing original topics for magazines, setting up exhibitions and enriching her personal files.

A Parisian gallery is currently hosting her last show called “Exterieur nuit”, a series of photographs on blind people. The images have been taken through the eighties in France, United States, Australia and Israel.

Mainly portraits, the images, like the one of a child, eyes closed, standing up near a window feeling deeply the rays of light, are always subtle and sweet. The artist deals here with a touchy topic but never ends up with a scary or disturbing result.

The most amazing in these portraits is the attitude of the characters, the way they stand, how they hold things. This exhibition give us a glance of what is it like to feel the world rather than see it.
