Once-Blind Artists Highlight University of Wyoming Photo Exhibit

"Jump" (RMLEB Photo)

If you were blind, what would you most like to see? Insight into that question can be granted at the “Circle of Light” photo exhibition in the University of Wyoming Union. The featured photos were taken by people who received eye transplants to regain their vision. 

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank (RMLEB) asked recipients across the nation who received transplants from eye donors in Colorado or Wyoming to pick up a camera and capture the things they were most grateful to be able to see through their restored vision. Professional photographers Lucia De Giovanni and Natascha Seidemeck selected the photos featured in the exhibit from more than 150 submissions.

The Circle of Light Photo Project images are on display through Thursday, Sept. 1, in Gallery 234, Room 004 of the UW Union. The event is free and open to the public. A reception will be from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sept. 1 with an eye bank representative on hand to discuss RMLEB and the exhibition.

The RMLEB facilitates the donation and transplantation of more that 1,500 corneas each year from donors in Colorado and Wyoming. Since 1982, RMLEB has facilitated more than 30,000 transplants.
