Blind Fine Art Photographer in ‘My Mind is a Camera’ Exhibit

Share this post:

A legally blind fine art photographer may be hard to believe, but that’s what Tammy Ruggles is. Born with a blinding disease known as RP, the world of fine art photography was off limits to her until a point-and-shoot digital camera set on auto and a 47-inch computer monitor came along in 2013.


She uses this method with her remaining vision to capture images of her surroundings in rural Kentucky. Black and white is her preferred style, as she see best in high contrast.

Some of her work has been published in international literary journals, art magazines, and photography publications like Photography Monthly, Graphis, Saint Red, PhotoVoice, Smart Photography, Orbis, The Whitefish Review, Art Photo, Fine Art and You, LiftBump, FullTrain, Inspired Living Today, Heartlight Magazine, IJ Review, Oitzarisme, and many more.


She hopes to have her work chosen for her first group photo show called “My Mind is a Camera” in August at the Art Beyond Boundaries gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, and wants to enjoy photography while her vision is at this level, because like time, RP marches on.
