The Labyrinth Of Possibility. The Photographer of Darkness

Sonia Soberats is a seventy-eight year old Venezuelan woman who lives alone in a modest apartment in New York City. The grief caused by the death of her only two children has caused her to lose all sense of sight. 

To get all the things she needs, she has to procure them by her own efforts. Today she dedicates herself to blind photography. Through different stages of Sonia's life and work we will observe how two concepts that seem totally antagonistic coexist in complete harmony.
