The series What is still there? By Caroline Fayette (1989 Paris, France) is devoted to the mental image in people who are blind or visually impaired. The photographer met these people and asked them to describe themselves. Then, she asked them to describe her. How does someone exist if he or she cannot be seen? What remains? She wanted her subjects to allow them to identify the essence of what she is. During her interviews she asked them to explain their blindness, to explain what it means to not see somebody but know they are there. Then, she tried to photograph herself through their eyes. These are the results of that experiment in self-portraits.
