:: blind photography for tv story
Hi, I and two colleagues are working on a tv story about
blind photography for school project. We need a blind or
visually impaired photographer around London as the source
who wants to share his/her experience in doing this thing.
Can you recommend someone around London?

“The Eyes of Me” is February's Community Cinema film in the Grand
Valley. The film at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, at the Mesa County Central
Library, and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24, at Dinosaur Journey Museum
“The Eyes of Me” is both the title of the movie and a rap song composed
by Chas, a blind teenage boy channeling his frustration and anger
through a musical outlet. Because this movie is about the visually
impaired, this documentary will be screened with audio descriptions
added for people with visual impairment.
In order for the audience to simulate the experience of vision
impairment, Jane Newton, one of the Grand Junction panelists, will
provide various goggles and glasses so the audience may listen, just
listen, and imagine the hurdles which must be overcome by those less
fortunate to compete in our world of sight.
About the film
Enter the world of Chas, Denise, Isaac and Meagan, all teenagers at
resident school TSBVI - Texas School for the Blind and Visually
Impaired. There are more than 9,000 students attending 46 schools
addressing the needs of visually impaired individuals.
Students, from freshmen to seniors, have come to TSBVI to learn, adapt,
and live in a world without the advantages of sight. The problems which
confront them might seem slight to those of us with vision, but every
issue is compounded by loss of sight. Crossing a street, cooking dinner,
living alone in an apartment or preparing for a prom, dealing with
boyfriend/girlfriend relationships; these are a few of the many
challenges made more complex by visual impairment.
Watch this film and discover what happens to Chas, Denise, Isaac and Meagan.
