During my volunteer work for the Oogvereniging (Eye Association) I met many normal-looking people with an eye condition.  They were not only bothered by their possible limitations, but also by incomprehension of others.  Incomprehension of how they, normal-looking people, see the world. I myself do not experience any limitation due to my secondary glaucoma. With this series of twenty double portraits, the normal portrait and how they see the portrait itself, I have tried to answer the question "But what do you really see?"

The project was the end of my education at the Fotoacademie |  Fotogram. Together with the Oogfonds (Eye Fund), the series was made into a traveling exhibition plus photo book, with an interview per person.
