There is a blind photographer at the Paralympics.

Joao Maia went blind in 2004 after an eye disease and failed surgeries.

15 centimeters in front of him he sees two fingers that I hold up, further away than that he sees only a mixture of colors.

- My technique is to use the sound.

Everything has a sound.

Like at the table tennis today.

The players are heard, they shout and express emotions and the ball is hit by the racket, he says.
