Blind people experiment the environment differently. They use their other senses to form a representation of the world, and this type of perception, when captured in photographs, can create intriguing images.

In order to make possible for blind photographers to see the results of their work and improve acessibility, we developed a software that allows us to materialize their photos.

With this experience, we intended to promote a social change by the increase of the acessibility, the self-steem and the raise of public awareness of the situation of blind people in the society.
