VIDEO: India’s blind photographer pushes physical, technological boundaries
Undaunted by his disability, a blind man in India has been pushing physical and technological boundaries and has become an inspirational figure in the process.
For Pranav Lal, the blindness is an “inconvenience” that doesn’t deter him from working in cyber security and, more importantly, pursue photography.
Image to sound
“So photography is a byproduct of me perceiving the world visually,” Lal told Al Arabiya English. He uses a device with a camera that picks up the image which is converted into sound, which is conveyed through bone conduction headphones.
Lal says he is interested in capturing landscapes and structures and believes he has fulfilled his aspirations because “there was no sugar-coating of the situation. It was like it was”.
