Adventitiously Blind Photographer

Ryo Hirosawa

Ryo Hirosawa is an adventitiously blind photographer. Despite a complete loss of sight several years ago, Ryo’s instinct for photography did not die; he uses techniques called Flash Sonar™ Echolocation to continue taking photos of his daily life. A cheeky, sneaky and swanky photographer who keeps shooting photos even after he lost his eyes. During his “”Recovery and Discovery” process, he met Daniel Kish of World Access for the Blind to learn to “see” by “acquiring the skills of flash sonar” and echolocation.
