Blindman’s Bluff Digital prints

Blindman's Bluff is an iconic image taken by John Yang in Strasbourg, France in 1960 and published in the book Photographing Children (Time-Life Books, 1971). A version of the photograph was used by the band Sigur Rós on the cover of their 2002 album "( )". Subsequently the image has become ubiquitous in popular culture and can be seen on everything from street art to t-shirts to tattoos.

Now, for the first time, the John Yang Archive is authorizing digital pigment prints of the original hand-printed photograph. Proceeds support the work of the John Yang Archive. Printed by Ribuoli Digital, a renowned fine art studio in NYC.

The photograph is also featured in a new book on Sigur Rós by Ethan Hayden.
