'Man, in understanding what happens around him, depends primarily on his sight, secondly his hearing.' What happens when you lose your sight and your world changes around you? If we mainly use our sight, what happens and changes as some of us slowly lose it over time? As a photographer, when sight is lost, does this mean that you can no longer produce the images you wish, or does it merely change why you take the image in the first place? Does an image need to be perfect or is it all about having a physical representation of the memory? Blind people who take photographs can see clearly, they are not bombarded by our everyday images, they create something unique.
