Wounded in Afghanistan in 2007, Chris was airlifted back to the UK and woke in hospital after multiple operations, completely blind from his head injury. As the swelling subsided, some limited sight returned, but Chris was left registered blind and needing to re-learn how to read and write. Rather than give up, Chris discovered photography and, starting from scratch, developed a passion for landscape photography. Hear his story, and see how he turned a disability into a passion.
