An insight into Sargy Mann's fascinating career, written by the artist and his son Peter Mann.

'Sargy Mann: Probably the best blind painter in Peckham' takes a closer look at twenty seven paintings chosen by the artist to represent different periods in his life as a painter - with the first painting dated 1963 and the most recent dated 2007.

The text is a 45,000 word piece by the artist, with each chapter taking one of the twenty seven paintings as its starting point, to then tell the story of his career, how he has continued to paint the world as he sees and experiences it, even while his sight deteriorated to the point of total blindness.

Each of the twenty seven paintings was photographed by Peter Mann where they are hanging today. The book moves between the artist at home or at work in his studio, and photographs of his work hanging in collector's houses around the world.
