Blind photographer uses disability to create art

CNN Photos, the newly-launched photo blog that tells stories through imagery, features the work and story of Craig Royal. The photographer has been legally blind since birth and has cataracts and white blind spots in both eyes. Royal brings a unique perspective to his photography by manipulating the shape of reflections and movement of water in his series called “Reflection Abstracts”. To learn more about Royal and how he develops his photos, rollover the top right corner of any of his photos and click the story tab.

As with the other galleries on CNN Photos, users are able to comment, share and read the story behind the moment the photo was snapped.
