Photographer Hannes Wallrafen (1951) turned blind in 2004 by a hereditary eye disease.
Imagine that…
He now works on sound projects.

I love his imaginative photo ‘De Schimmel’ (Dutch term for a white horse) from 1984. An image I will never forget and that made me wonder immediately: is this scene real or is it manipulated?
The answer: it’s real.
The horse did jump over the table. Hannes Wallrafen made this staged photo in the manege of his sister.
For those who understand Dutch: listen to Hannes own explanation of this work HERE.
