What if your view of the world was always blurred? That is what North London artist Adam Hahn wants visitors to his new show to ponder. Launched last week, the portrait exhibition aims to convey how people with macular degeneration (MD) — a condition which causes seriously blurred vision and blindness — see through a foggy haze.
Mr Hahn, 29, has spent the past year talking to sufferers and his exhibition features portraits of them as they would see themselves. He created the show to promote awareness of the degenerative eye condition in memory of his grandmother.
