Photographs by Michael Amendolia 

Sight is something most of the world takes for granted.

There are 32.4 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired, but four out of five of them don’t need to be.

Photographer Michael Amendolia has more than 25 years’ experience making stories about restoring sight. It all started in 1992 in the courtyard of the Institute of Ophthalmology in Hanoi when on his first overseas assignment he captured the now iconic portrait of Fred Hollows with a young boy, Tran Van Giap.

This photographic exhibition represents a selection of images from Michael’s extensive archive. It features stories of preventable blindness across the world where the Fred Hollows Foundation and its partners restore sight – from North Korea to Ethiopia, Kenya to Nepal, and where it all started back in Vietnam.
