На выставке «Единомышленники» в Гараже впервые услышала профессиональное описание визуальной работы для слепых - тифлокомментарий. Он существенно отличается от аудио гида. Очень интерсный опыт. На выставке представлены две фотографии Синди Шерман из серии «Кадры из фильмов без названия». Я никогда больше минуты не рассматривала эти фотографии, многие детали не замечала и даже не подумала бы обратить внимание, если бы меня попросили описать, что изображено.
Текстовая фотография все таки предназначена для тех, кто видел или сможет увидеть фотографию.

К сожалению, на русском языке не смогла найти таких описаний фотографий.
Пример от Victoria and Albert Museum:
Lee Miller is standing slightly left of centre, her feet apart and planted firmly on the ground. Her shadow stretches away to her right at an angle of about ten degrees and then climbs a protruding block at the bottom right of the picture. She has her back to us but twists around at the hips so her left shoulder is thrust towards us. Her left arm is folded across her front at a right angle, and her head is turned, looking over her shoulder, so we see her face in profile. As her hair is short and close to her head, the shape of her face shows very clearly.

Автор немецкого блога, в котором много описаний именно к фотографиям, в своем блоге на английском языке приводит такие правила для описания изображения:
1. Details about the picture: Who made it? When, where and why was it made? Is there a background story attached to it? How big and in which format is it? For paintings: What techniques have been used?
2. Iconographical and iconological description: What is depicted? What is in the middle, at the top, at the bottom, on the left and on the right? From which angle is the picture taken? Are there remarkable compositional features?
3. What impression does the picture make on the describer? Here personal impressions should not overbalance more objective features. It should be rather easy to determine the atmosphere and sometimes also season and time of day. Finally, the describer can add things that strike her or him as remarkable and noteworthy.
