The photographic production by visually impaired artists has increased considerably in the last years and has been exhibited at major exhibition venues, reflectint Photography’s role as a medium for democratization and for empowering socially weak groups by teaching them to use the camera. However, the artwork remains invisible for the visually impaired person, until converted by a seeing interpretation artist. To eliminate these shortcomings, we have developed an approach based on stereoscopy and 3D Printing, to extend the outreach by involving other sensory channels. Tactile Photography is based on digital Stereoscopy, and uses 3D Printing to produce tactile reliefs.
