Blind & Adventurous

In an extended collaboration with Microsoft, Photographer Brian Smale has been introduced to all sorts of people, projects and developments within the Microsoft family. One of the most intriguing projects Brian recently shot for gives visually impaired people a sense of freedom and independence that was previously unavailable.

Microsoft is working with a UK based company called Guide Dogs to develop a 3D soundscape technology, a revolutionary piece of tech that will allow the visually impaired to explore and navigate cities in a way they have never seen, or heard for that matter. Here are some of the shots Brian captured while on set as well as an informational video about how this life-changing technology will change millions of lives.
