Catch the eye – workshop on photography

May 2012
Catch the eye

It’s what turnarounds are all about. Sightsavers, a global development organisation that works to eliminate avoidable blindness, is holding an awareness event titled Through Different Eyes – workshop on photography, which aims at sensitising sighted people to the challenges that blind people face every day. 10 visually impaired children, between 10 and 16 years, from Sightsavers-supported programmes attended a workshop on photography. These children have had their sight restored as best as possible. They were taught the basics of handling a digital camera and photography through interactive sessions and outdoor shoots.

The outcome is a set of brilliant pictures filled with colour and expression. A collection of 30 to 40 photographs will be displayed at the event. Besides, walk into the Experience Zone, which is an interactive section where the daily challenges a visually impaired person faces will be shared. The event also aims at raising awareness about eye care — the fact that most eye conditions are avoidable and easily treated, and to emphasise that visually impaired people can overcome any challenge, with support from society.
