Blind With Camera is an initiative of the Beyond Sight Foundation, a not-for-profit organization prompting the art of photography in people with visual impairment and capacity building around the “Non-Retinal” Art culture in India. It provides a platform for the visually impaired to share their “Inner Gallery” of images – their imagination and point-of-view of the visual world, and speak out about their unique experience, feelings, challenges and hopes.
Photographs by the visually impaired helps to empower them, provide them earning opportunities and facilitate their social inclusion. It demystify the polarity between blindness and visual expression, helps to sensitize people, spread awareness and correct public perception of visual impairment.
Along with liberating the art from the point of view, view of the sight, the Beyond Sight Foundation through its other innovative programs bring the visually impaired and sighted people on equal platforms, bridge the gap between them and increase tolerance in society.
