Bangalore: Who would imagine a visually impaired person could take a photo? Partho Bhowmick, a Mumbai-based photographer has changed this inhibition for all as he gives the visually impaired an experience in the artistic expression with the use of cameras. His workshops have students who are all visually impaired, and he teaches them to use their other senses to see, reported Jagriti Chandra for CNN-IBN.



The students demonstrate how they use sound to gauge direction and touch to assess the object they are capturing. With the help of the senses of sound and touch those who have no sight can see images.



But this would not have been possible without Partho, the man who initiated the technique in the country. His project ‘Blind with Camera’ is an initiative of his Beyond Sight Foundation.



Partho said "The aim is social inclusion. Plus this also empowers them to show the world that they can do something the world thinks they can't," as reported by IBN Live.
