Pete Eckert is a totally blind photographer who uses sound, touch, and memory to render images in his mind's eye. He was originally trained in sculpture and industrial design, and has also earned an MBA and two black belts. His photographic work uniquely remakes the practice of light painting. Eckert's work has been exhibited and recognized internationally and featured commercially by VW, Playboy, Swarovski, and in the television series NCIS. He was most recently in an ad for Google, and was awarded the grand prize in the Artists Wanted "Exposure" contest in New York.
