How does a visually impaired photographer see the world?

How does a visually impaired photographer see the world? Tero Kokko's Touching Picture photo exhibition offers a multisensory experience, where the most important thing is everyone's own way of seeing the series of images. 

Touching Image asks if people are actually seeing things or whether they are skipping them by taking them for granted. The visually impaired Tero Kokko challenges the viewers of the images to sense, to perceive, to feel and to touch.

Iris Centre
