In the Vision & Art Project’s short film, A Is for Artist, the American artist and illustrator Robert Andrew Parker, who has had macular degeneration for the past decade, reflects upon his distinguished career and talks about how vision loss has affected his work.


The film includes footage of Parker painting in his studio. It is scored by his son, the jazz drummer Chris Parker.

We are grateful to independent Boston-based documentary producer Cathleen O’Connell of Desert Penguin Pictures, who brought her expertise to the making of this film.
