WHAT WOULD YOU most miss seeing if you were to lose your sight in the morning?
It’s a sobering question but one that has prompted hundreds of Irish people to submit their snapshots in response. Sightsavers Ireland hit on the thought-provoking topic for their first Snap-A-Sight contest, in order to highlight the issue of global blindness.
A spokesperson for Sightsavers Ireland said that the contest was particularly popular among teenagers who were “engaged in a ‘language’ they would understand – phones and photos”.
The top photos – as voted for by the public – go on display today at Filmbase on Curved Street, Temple Bar in Dublin.
You should head down there to see the full collection but this should give you a taster of how creative people got with their phones… and make you feel grateful for the gift of sight.
