Emma Chaplin’s eye for nature and architecture

Emma Chaplin is an Eye Clinic Liaison Officer, who started working at the Sussex Eye Hospital in February 2016, employed by Action for Blind People (part of the RNIB group).

“My job is to offer support, advice and information to patients with visual impairments. I have always enjoyed taking pictures of my local environment, and living in Brighton & Hove, enjoy both the natural beauty of the sea and downs views and the stunning range of architecture – from the beauty of Regency residencies to the determined industry of the Port.

 Working with people with sight loss has made me realise how sighted people take the visual world fore granted and made me think about how to make visual media more accessible – for example by providing vivid descriptions to accompany photographs.”
