EYES OPEN PHOTOGRAPHY
Eyes Open Photography proudly hosted the second annual exhibition 'Summer Sight' for Glaucoma awareness this summer on July 29th, 2023 showcasing Jordan Tidd's new work within the Paradise Island Collection. Thank you to all who attended, supported and donated - you are greatly appreciated.
WHO WE ARE
Eyes Open Photography was created by Jordan Tidd to raise awareness for Glaucoma through the art of photography. She works with both the Canadian Ophthalmological Society to provide the most accurate information and the Glaucoma Research Society as the recipient of donations. Jordan Tidd works on the other side of the lens as a professional fashion model; but when her work day is done, most people know her to go right back to capturing moments whether it be through a three second video or a panoramic shot. Look out for Glaucoma Edits, which are photographs by Jordan Tidd specifically edited to illustrate vision with Glaucoma. If you are unable to purchase a piece, we hope you are able to learn more about the complex disease that provides Jordan with her inspiration.
"I host annual photography exhibition events to share my pieces and raise awareness for eye health. Come with eyes open and a hopeful mind! Glaucoma awareness is extremely important to me; and now and forever, Eyes Open Photography will be donating a percentage of all profits towards Glaucoma research and awareness. Find a piece that reflects yourself or create feelings of appreciation and love for our world; and I would be honoured to have it on your walls."
We hope to meet you someday at one of our events!
Jordan Tidd works to raise awareness for Glaucoma eye disease - one photo at a time. She learned about the vision-thieving disease at the age of seventeen, and continues her work in awareness with each collection she showcases.
"My work explores the use of photography as an instrument to illustrate the new perspective of the worldview that Glaucoma vision creates. It's incredibly ironic how the camera acts as my eye. Glaucoma is incurable and uncorrectable, but the different lenses and camera settings create the opportunity to see the smallest of details and widest of views. I also find inspiration in the ocean - my favourite destination and where I try to spend the most time is beautiful Paradise Island, Bahamas. Being near the ocean, I can feel my other senses strengthening which is a perspective I create in my work."
