The most powerful photography exhibition I’ve ever seen goes beyond sight

I have been fortunate enough to experience many photography exhibitions over the past few years but few have moved me as much as Canon World Unseen.

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend Canon's latest exhibition titled World Unseen, an exhibition designed as an immersive experience for the visually impaired audience. I have always been passionate about inclusivity and accessibility in the arts, and I recognize how fortunate I am to be able to enjoy photography with little by way of obstacles. I also realize that this privilege can sometimes make me oblivious to the challenges faced by others who do not have the same access.
