Photography exhibition “Viewfinder” by children with impaired hearing

Interactive exhibition “Viewfinder” presents 35 photographs taken by young people with partially or completely impaired hearing, as part of their photography classes at SUUUS Prof. Dr. Decho Denev.
Over 30 children and young people between 7 – 19 years old took part in the photography classes and practices. During the classes, the young people learned the different styles of photography, how to take pictures with good composition, why the light is important, how to take pictures with different perspectives and how to convey a message through photography.
Viewfinder is an initiative of the Motif Foundation, which aims to pass on visual knowledge and skills to hearing-impaired young people so that they can successfully use photography as a means of expression. Photography is a tool for developing their creative and artistic skills, a new way of telling stories and self-expression.
