Last year Koos Breukel has portrayed (partially) blind people, who visited the ocularist Erica Groet. An ocularist creates artificial eyes for people who miss one or two eyes. Both Breukel and Groet share a fascination for 'seeing'. With this series Breukel aims at opening a discussion on prejudices regarding blindness. At first glance nothing is 'wrong' with these people: it's the viewer who does not 'see'. Cosmetic View is available in book form (€ 25,-).
