We are all blind unless we are willing to see through another person’s eyes. The exhibition stems from the Blind Photography Project which aims to explore new ways of looking at the city, build bridges between the blind and sighted and challenge common assumptions about blindness. The exhibition will show photographs from walks done in Vienna and Caracas, all of which were taken by blind participants in these cities. The photographic works are presented together with the stories behind these photos, which are written in braille. The photo without the story is not enough, and in the same way the story without the photo cannot be understood. Therefore to gain real understanding, an exchange between the visitors must take place.
