Never Seen: The Interviews

In my last two articles I’ve told you about the events that we put on to showcase the results of the Never Seen blind photography project. These events were made possible by additional funding from British Council Sub-Saharan Africa Arts.

When I first described our concerns about the current rolling blackouts in South Africa, I mentioned that we decided to pre-record interviews with the key players on the project in case of connectivity issues on the day. As it turned out, we only had to use one of these videos. And that was at the in-person event at Athlone School for the Blind.

Rather than me telling you what each person said during the interviews, why not let them tell you themselves – it will give you a really good overview of what we achieved in the project and the impact it had on the participants.
So here they are – a fitting way to close off this amazing project that I was honoured to have played a small part in to help build awareness about adaptive photography.

And that’s where we’re going to leave the Never Seen blind photography project for now – though don’t be too surprised if the subject of blind photography crops up again in the future. And I’m sure I’ll also have more to say about accessible social media and online resources. But for now, here are the links.

I hope you’ve enjoyed travelling with us as we’ve worked through the Never Seen project.

And now on to something different…
