Meet blind photographer Smithen [watch]

Mickel Smithen is an extraordinary endowed blind photographer who takes pictures with the help of his other brains.

Smithen said, photography has a chance to express what he has in his mind, what he imagined and would like to see.

Smithen suffers from hemianopia and partially sighted but does not see colours and facial expressions.

Smithen lost his sight when he was 5 years old, due to a brain tumour but went on to become a published photographer.

On how he started photography, he said, “I got into photography in around 2008, when I took part in a workshop and they were looking for visually impaired who were interested in photography, so I threw myself into that. ”

His technique involves mapping out areas and paying attention to sounds and space.
