'Beyond Sight', a unique exhibition of photographs taken by the visually impaired, was held recently at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Mumbai. It was a first-of-its-kind programme, where nine visually challenged persons learnt the art of photography, sharpened their skills for a year and captured sounds, voices, smells and touches through the camera. Partho Bhowmick, the man behind the show, is an IT professional and a skilled photographer who moved from Kolkata to Mumbai in 1999.
