"Living Blind in Pictures and Words" explores the experience of living with visual impairment through photographs, videos and interviews. The project aims to give a voice to the participants and provide insight to the general public about issues related to visual impairment. In addition, our intention is to create increased awareness and support for Southern Arizona Association for the Visually Impaired (SAAVI).
