Colorblindness – Seeing Color Colorblind
“Colorblindness,” more accurately color deficient vision, affects 8-10% of people in the US. Roughly 10% of those, or a total of 1% of the US population, have a severe red deficiency, called protanopia.
“Seeing Color Colorblind” is now available in Kindle format from Amazon. The book contains a series of diptychs showing images as seen by people with normal color vision, and how they are seen by someone with a severe red color vision deficiency – “colorblindness.” There are different types and degrees of what has been labeled “colorblindness.” These images speak to severe red deficiency or protanopia, the type of color vision my father had and my son has. My son sees both sides of the diptychs in the Kindle as the same. Yes, I know it is very surprising to see for the first time – and the tenth time.

In the coming months look for hard copy formats as well.
