    Silver Winner in Human/Culture

Photography of students with visual impairments made me familiar with certain aspects of their lives. In the beginning my presence was not welcome. They could feel I’m there by hearing click of the shutter. After a while by building trust between us, I was gradually accepted among them. Then they were no more feeling uneasy and were proceeding with their usual activities. They were curious about photography. Few of them even knew about concepts of color and illumination. I was asked whether at the end I will show them the photos. All images are full frame and none are cropped.
