Photos by blind photographer Sonia Soberats

The work of the blind photographer, Sonia Soberats, is simply mind-blowing. The New York Times Lens blog did a recent profile of the 77-year-old in which she explains how she only began photography classes in 2001, a decade after she lost her sight.

She works in a pitch-black studio using a method known as ‘light painting’, feeling out the shape of her muses with her hands before asking her assistance to open the shutter. ‘Using various light sources, including flashlights and Christmas lights, she darts about the frame like Tinkerbell, illuminating details within the image’, NYT Lens writes. ‘The shutter remains open anywhere from two minutes to an hour’.
