My Reasons for taking photographs

 

         It helps me reconnect with the sighted world.

 

         It stimulates my creative imagination in an extraordinary and thought-provoking way. 

 

         As an activity and process, it is Confidence enhancing

 

         It sets me new challenges hitherto unimagined. 

 

         I am challenged to develop barrier-free artwork.  I am challenged to think as an artist. 

 

         It helps to preserve live moments as vivid and powerful memories.

 

         It reminds me what the physical world looks like. 

 

         It introduces me to imagery I have never experienced before E.g. a cityscape, a face or modern design.

 

         It helps me to engage with the work and ideas of other artists.

 

         As an artform, it is multifaceted and that is its great appeal.

 

         It is fun, always revealing, magical, mysterious and never dull!

 

         As a concept, blind photography is unconventional, so it stimulates debate and new thinking.

 

         It enables other people to engage with me and my life experience.
