We promised you news – and here they are: OBSCURA’s 6 awesome judges Ulla, Jörg, Tom, Chris, Nora and Jussi have all made their choice! And what’s more: the OBSCURA team has consolidated all the votes, and finally picked the 121 winning pinholes to be published in the book.
It’s been a long wait, but it was worth it, things are starting to roll: In the next couple of days, the photographers of our winning pinholes are going to be notified by e-mail or Flickr message. For those of you who don’t hear from us in the next couple of days – there’s still a chance to be in the book, as there will be a “waiting list” in case of “no-shows”.
So, our dearest participants, keep a close eye on your inboxes!
I’ve been documenting David since he was blinded as a result of a freak bicycling accident 2 years ago. Before the accident robbed him of his sight (David is 100% blind, zero light perception) he was an avid collector of books and an avid reader. His rooms are filled with books gathering dust, their pages filled with adventures, lives, stories and descriptions of visions and vistas that David is unable to now experience.
Together we can raise the money required to purchase a SARA - Scanning and reading appliance; a device designed solely for those affected with blindness and one able to be used right of of the box.
The SARA will allow David to place his books or any other printed material upon it and then convert the printed text to audio that David will be able to hear. From being unable to read to able to read any printed material in 5 minutes.
