    ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN AN UNSIGHTED WORLD FROM BEHIND A LENS.

    The View Finder and LCD monitor will no longer be necessary for one group of people
    who shoot photographs ‘instinctively’ and not ‘visually’.

    Photography is not only many art lovers’ dream but also for the visually impaired, who are
    always considered to be people in photographs, not the ones pressing shutters. Just because,
    ‘Being unable to see’ is the cause that they are unable to take photos. Well, we can put it better
    this way – Change this thought to, ‘Do not (need to) look.’

    From Inspiration
    ‘How could a blind person become a photographer?’

    ‘Choon’, or Mr. Nopadon Panyawuthikrai, has been always questioned by many people
    every time he conveys his thoughts on a project to other people. It seems that the more
    explanations he gives, the more question marks come into his story.
    ‘There is no one in Thailand that has yet run this project ever before. As per my research, there
    are less and less people who do the same thing as I am doing now, even in other countries. The
    first country that was a pioneer of this project was Japan, secondly, Israel, and I’m not certain
    about the third one whether or not it is the UK or the USA. We [Thailand] are the fourth country
    in the world running this project.’

    Mr. Nopadon is referring to the ‘Photography Course for the Visually Impaired Project’. Project
    volunteers are from members of a social group called Pict4all—a photography lovers’
    community that does not only aim for pleasure from photography, but also create smiles and
    joyfulness in society and various minority groups of people who are less fortunate than
    themselves. The project is inspired from the vision of a man who is totally passionate about
    photography, that man is Ajarn Tawat Malila

    ‘When it comes to photography, I always emphasise that motivation or inspiration in
    photography is a top priority for a person who is going to do a photo shoot.’ Ajarn Tawat is
    inspired, in return, by the resilience and resourcefulness of the physically & visually impaired,
    compelling him to kick off this project in Thailand.

    ‘I went to Sa Nam Luang when the funeral of HRH Princess Kanlayaniwattana was organised there at that time. There was a lady in a wheel-chair. I was wondering why this lady was here and why she completely alienated herself from others. I walked past that lady turning my eyes to her, and then I saw that she had also brought her camera along. I asked her what was the inspiration for her photography. She replied that she loves photography so much. Photography is happiness.Therefore, I took her photo and told her that if she did not mind I would like to illustrate the photos of her I captured to be a part of my lecture.

    Later, after this initial encounter, I went to Nan Province with our staffs to make a donation,
    we visited Khao Noi (Mount Noi). Khao Noi is a mountain landscape that has views overlooking
    Nan City. While I was admiring the views, I saw one man who was taking a photo. However, the
    way he took the photos was not typical, intrigued I walked down to him. It appeared that he had
    no arms from below his elbows but yet he still smiled. I asked him how he felt when he took
    photos. He answered to me that he was really happy. After his reply, I asked him for permission
    to photograph him, just like I did the lady I had met previously at Sanam Luang.’

    Ajarn Tawat carried the stories of meeting these 2 physically impaired people into his
    photography classes until he had a chance to go to a workshop and a photography exhibition
    where all the photographs on display were taken by Israeli blind people in June 2009. These
    events really inspired him to start this project.

    Ms. Iris Darel Shinar tells me that when she conducted her photography class for the visually impaired, they were proud to say that they had a chance to do what sighted people do and they feel happy about this. I wondered about this until I went to observe the class last time (first-time session), and I found that it’s true. They are truly happy.’

    That filled me with confidence for running the project, especially, when all support comes from
    Mr. Nopadon and Pict4all members, who I strongly feel, can make the project a success.
    ‘Khun Choon has blindfolded himself three times, each time for 8 hours, to gain an empathy with
    his students. He has had his eyes covered up, and then wandered around places he had never
    been to before to shoot photos. I accompanied him one time to observe. Suddenly, I had the
    overwhelming belief that we will succeed because I am passionate to make this project here in
    Thailand, which no one has done yet. I think we should offer visually impaired people
    opportunities to be happy.’

    Mr. Nopadon admitted that it is not easy to live your life in a dark world. You have to exercise other senses which must direct your path, but to be unable to see things sometimes makes him discover an unusual and unexpected happiness.

    ‘When we visually see things, our sight overwhelms our other senses as we see things with our
    eyes. But when we are blind, things we used to be worried or frightened about before are not
    such a big problem in photography at all... I can honestly tell you that I have taken photos for
    five years visually, but when I made myself blind, and took photos, it is the happiest moment I’ve
    ever had. Firstly, we couldn’t see anything, so we would never know how things look and what
    colours there were because we took all the photos instinctively from our heart. They were
    pictures of a barista, a merchant. We listened to their voices and we felt those voices were nice.
    Those voices sounded happy. We assumed that they would be good photos to take even
    though we were not sure if they would be good or not but our heart told us that they were happy.
    We don’t need to worry whether they will be beautiful pictures or not, at the end of the day, we
    can’t see the photos, but there are images of divine feeling saved in a good part of our
    memories.
    Being blind made me realise the way that we all take it for granted when we use our personal
    thoughts to replace feelings of people who have no chances for good opportunities in society.
    This may seem somewhat a view of self-centredness.’

    To Visually Impaired

    From the inspiration and the kernel of those thoughts, Mr. Nopadon gradually formed the
    project and curriculums in order to propose them to The Bangkok School for the Blind, where
    Ajarn Tawat Malila and Ajarn Phuwaphong Pajonaripai are counsellors, as well as to muster support from the Art and Culture Office of Chandrakasem Rajabhat University.
