The project “Through your eyes” tells the story of the puppies trained by the “Servizio Cani Guida dei Lions e Ausili per la Mobilità dei Non Vedenti ONLUS” of Limbiate (MB), one of the five centres in Italy that train Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Flat-Coated Retrievers, Poodles.
Through photography, I tried to describe the entire process from the first meeting between the dog and the blind person (from the birth of the puppy, to the period of foster care with the “Puppy Walker” families, to the real training and the choice of the future owner), trying to focus in particular on those aspects which may seem natural or obvious to an ordinary person but which are actually the result of great diligence, work and effort of the centre staff and in particular of the animal itself.
I was interested in this theme because I am a dog lover and I wanted to tell a story with important and positive values, such as friendship, loyalty, courage or altruism. By bearing witness to this story, I would also like to raise awareness of a situation that is still little-known today in Italy and to try to change something in the way society deals with disabilities.
