For any of us who have ever used a “handicap,” perceived or real, as an excuse to not do something, this story can be very humbling and encouraging.  The last hobby you might expect a blind person to take up is photography.  It is all visual after all, right?  But a group of blind individuals in Mexico City are doing just that disproving that photography is strictly a visual art.  Although they cannot see the end result of their work, which may be a frustration to most of us, they are taking photography beyond the visual and are presenting the world as they “see” it through their photographs.  They use their other senses, hearing, smell, touch, to compose their images making them a visual interpretation of a world they cannot see.
