About this submission

I spent the first two decades of my life trying to hide my eyes. Then, in my senior year of college, I pointed the camera towards the part of my face that I was most ashamed of. Part of the impetus for this film was practical—I wanted people to know how I see and how they can look me in the eye. But I also wanted them to know how I’ve come to terms with my vision. “I don’t have a problem with the way that I see, my only problem is with the way that I’m seen.”
