Though Eckert's blindness would appear to be a hindrance to his art, Eckert insists that his lack of vision has, in fact, been a boon. "Vision is so strong that it masks other senses, other abilities; it even overrides visualization," Eckert says. "Sighted photographers always talk about the difficulty of what they call 'seeing.' I tell them 'If you can't see, it's because your vision is getting in the way.'" (© by the artist, courtesy of UCR/California Museum of Photography)
