A halftone print gives you the illusion of looking at a grey-and-white picture, even though the picture is made only of black dots (much like the photos in old newspapers). With increased distance our eyes merge these differences into shades of grey.
The quote “I think we are all blind. We are blind people that can see but that do not look” is taken from Jose Saramago’s novel ‘Blindness’. Even though we might see other people, the problems, suffering and destruction, we often fail to perceive them. Just like a halftone, you have to look closely in order to see its core and not just shades.
