In Pingelap and Pohnpei, islands in Micronesia, an extraordinarily high percentage of the inhabitants suffer from the rare genetic condition achromatopsia: complete colour-blindness. Portraying the mythical island and the achromatopic islanders resulted in a selection of images that mask their eyes, their face, and empower their ‘vision’, inviting the viewer to enter a dreamful world of colourful possibilities. Sanne De Wilde experimented with black and white and infrared photography, in a metaphorical attempt to envision how people with achromatopsia see the world.
