“For the Blind series, Calle photographed people born without sight and asked them to describe “their image of beauty.” Juxtaposing words and images, the artist compounded various modes of apprehension in order to point out their inevitable lack- the blind spot implicit in all representation. Cleverly undercutting objective notions of truth and beauty, she instead locates the meaning of art within the infinite, irreducible responses of the beholder.”
