Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he IS a visual person, he just can't see. 

Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of Artists Wanted: Exposure 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.

Artists Wanted is proud to present this truly inspiring portrait of the artist.
