Description of book: Touch tells the story of the 23 year-old Stijn: a man born blind, living in a small apartment in the city. The furniture inside his apartment aren’t obstacles. On the contrary, they lead his way. Peter Dekens portrayed Stijn inside his apartment and during the winter months. Because Stijn does not need light, the lights were consequently left unlit during the evening hours.
