Aperture expands its fine reputation with this unique work by photographers from New York at the Seeing with Photography collective, which has been active for over 15 years. Members have varying degrees of sight; one, for instance, says that she sees sunlight and fog. Using a Polaroid to create images by "painting with light" that is, with flashlights these artists produce work that is startlingly original and creative. Their hope is that through this work the sighted will both learn to appreciate their vision and become aware of the talents and self-expression of those whose vision is limited. The images are high-quality, mostly full-page portraits staged with intriguing backgrounds to represent the personality of each photographer. Throughout, faces are often highlighted. The interviews with the photographers add insight into their character and photographic goals, as do the brief biographies and portraits of the artists. The text is in large, easily legible print. Highly recommended for photography, special education, and general collections. Lynetta Alexander, Tennessee State Univ., Nashville
