The University of California-Riverside Museum of Photography's new "Sight Unseen" exhibit features the work of 12 prominent blind photographers based around the globe. "This inherently conceptual work proposes a surprisingly central thesis - blind photographers possess the clearest vision on the planet," the museum said in a statement. The exhibit opened May 2 and runs through Aug. 29.
