The photography exhibition you don’t need to see

RNIB is excited to announce that we have partnered with Canon Europe to create a unique photography exhibition called “World Unseen”.

The exhibition is designed to provide an immersive experience for all visitors; including those who are blind, partially sighted, or sighted. The exhibition utilises Canon’s elevated printing technology to make art more accessible to everyone. It showcases works from renowned photographers, and the artwork is accompanied by elevated prints, audio descriptions, soundscapes, braille, and Navi Lens. Visitors are encouraged to touch and feel tactile prints, which helps to create a more vivid mental representation of the artwork. The exhibition will take place at Somerset House in London from April 5th to April 7th, 2024. Admission is free.

For phone support around your booking your tickets, please call +44 (0)333 320 2836 or visit the Somerset House website.

Dave Williams, Inclusive Design Ambassador, RNIB, said: “The World Unseen exhibition opens up the world of photography and enables more blind and partially sighted people to experience the emotive stories, and physical touch, of these iconic images. As a braille user, it’s fantastic to be working with Canon to raise awareness of the possibilities of textured print and to see in action how technology can make art more accessible for people with sight loss.”
