Forwarding email from Partho Bhowmick about a new workshop:
After pioneering combining the concepts of blindness and photography for last 4 years, early this year Blind With Camera has launched yet another innovative initiative - Blindfold Photo Workshop for the sighted people. These workshops are conducted by trained blind photographers, demonstrating a reversal of role, challenging common perceptions and inspiring social change.
