Blind photographer's work displayed in Fullerton

Weston’s nature photography has a surreal quality.

A most unusual exhibit of photographs is currently on display at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton. The pictures are by legally blind artist Kurt Weston, who has no vision in his left eye and only limited peripheral vision in his right. He claims the world appears to him like an impressionist painting. But his photos offer an almost unworldly view of nature, with supersaturated color.

Weston earned his MFA from Cal State Fullerton. Some of his pictures were included in the California Museum of Photography’s 2009 exhibition, “Sight Unseen: International Photography by Blind Artists,” which is currently scheduled to embark on an international tour.

Weston’s exhibit at the Muckenthaler is entitled “Seasons in the Prayer Garden.” It will run through March 28. Admission is free. The museum is located at 1201 West Malvern Avenue in Fullerton.
