Daniel Williams (Visualise Training and Consultancy) challenges the lack of profile and visibility in the media and fashion industry for people living with visual impairment.
“After living with a visual impairment (VI) for over 25 years, not much has changed surrounding the media and fashion industry’s portrayal of people living with sight loss as we are still represented in a bland old fashion light.”
“Some sight loss charities seem to constantly portray images of older white ladies with white hair wearing dark sunglasses, however this is a stereotype that needs to change, as blind people come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, sexual orientations, classes and personalities, just like everyone else within society.”
“And here’s a link to my YouTube channel containing sight loss related videos for you to share as required.”
