In celebrating the Month of Photography,
Access Gallery is pleased to present
“Another Pointe of View,” a photographic
exploration of ballet from sight impaired
students. This show culminates an eightweek
residency program in conjunction with
the Colorado Ballet. Lead artists, Rachel
Gomez and Chris James, worked with two
mediums not typically associated with blind
students – dance and photography. The
results are amazing!

The students received an introduction to
the camera and were able to explore the
Colorado Ballet from top to bottom. They
were able to photograph the studios, the
costume shop and even behind the scenes
at the Ballet. Each student was also able
to attend an audio described performance
of the Colorado Ballet’s Masterworks and a
behind the scenes tactile tour.

Nearly 20% of the US population has a
disability, yet rarely are they depicted in
film or media. Access Gallery works with a
group from Easter Seals Colorado weekly.
Instructor Rachel Gomez took some amazing
portraits of our participants. We believe the
results are stunning and vividly capture the
personality of each participant. For more
