One Woman Proves You Don't Need Sight to Create Art
Yaeno White, 72, is legally blind, with just a little bit of tunnel 
vision. But looking at her, it would be hard to tell — her disability 
has not stopped her from making and selling ceramics, learning to salsa 
dance or getting a job.


The blind photographer who covered the Paralympics
An inflammation of the eye called uveitis left Joao Maia da Silva almost 
completely blind at 28-years-old, but could not stop him from becoming a 
photographer and fulfilling his dream of covering the Paralympic Games.
In 2003, the Brazilian took part in a photography course for visually 
impaired people. That started a career that reached its peak earlier 
this September when he covered Rio 2016 and became internationally known 
for his striking talent.
