Surrealism x visual impairment

Artist Cerys Dyson is currently exhibiting her photographic project ‘surrealism x visual impairment’ on ‘The Wall’- Wakefield Museums and Castles mini gallery- in Create Café at Wakefield One.

Photophobia, by Cerys Dyson

We asked Cerys about her work:

"My name is Cerys Dyson, I have studied a HND in photography at Wakefield College which is where the idea & project of ‘surrealism x visual impairment’ came from for my final major.

As well as just a project it has a deep sentimental value for me as I was born with nystagmus - living with it means I know what it’s like, but I wanted to push my boundaries further to investigate different conditions and raise awareness of how visually impaired people see!

Pictures within my project cover conditions such as photophobia, diabetic retinopathy, cataract, macular degeneration, tunnel vision and of course nystagmus! I also made a book which explains the conditions in detail to match the pictures.

Diabetic Retinopathy, By Cerys Dyson

Further progression for this project's audiences could ideally be in eye clinics, hospitals and other photographic galleries! "

Surrealism x visual impairment will be exhibited at Create Cafe until 11 November.
