What does your mind see?

Samsung, in collaboration with Cheil Worldwide, organized a striking photo exhibition in Seoul last month. Entitled ‘Insight Exhibition’ it featured work by 11 students from the Hanbit School for the Blind. “My friend, a professional photographer, said blind people do take photos with their sense of hearing, smell and touch. I was deeply moved and that was the start”, said Kate Oh, vice president-executive creative director of Cheil.

Then students used special cameras that automatically track and capture the subject of a photo and use the smile recognition technology. The result turned out to be amazing as the inspired children made the photos intuitively. The photos featuring mostly nature were made on Jeju island, a volcanic island off the coast of South Korea.

Cheil commented that the exhibit “shows Samsung Electronics’ philosophy—technology makes people happy.” Currently, Samsung is searching for bloggers who will cover the Olympic Games worldwide.
