In this video, John, a former agent for fashion photographers who has gone blind, recounts the stories that circulate around and through his photographic collection. With only a small island of vision left John must move the photograph in such a way that it aligns itself with this small island of vision. Once this happens he can know the whole photograph through the memory stimulated by that fragment of the image. As the video proceeds the lighting in the room becomes darker and darker until finally he is speaking through the dark
