Seeing Beyond Sight

Tony Deifell is the author of Seeing Beyond Sight, and instigator of a project that I find particularly interesting. Tony had an idea for something he calls a "passion project", teaching photography to blind teenagers. He was unsure if this project would foster confidence in the students, or if this project would be a cruel experiment. What he found is that artistic expression is healing, even in those who can't fully see what they have created. All of the students have varying degrees of blindness, so the results vary based on that, but these photographs are intriguing and I encourage you to check it out.

This reminds me there is a photography museum in Florence Italy and they do guided tours for the blind. Each photo on display has a 3D version next to it.
