An award-winning entrepreneur, Amar Latif had lost ninety-five percent of his sight through an incurable eye condition by the age of twenty. Latif’s determination to be an independent traveller led him to set up the world’s first commercial air-tour business specialising in travel for blind and sighted passengers. A proud Glaswegian, he is well-known for his charity work and has appeared in several television documentaries and acting roles. In this photograph Latif’s relations have all come together to be part of a portrait of a strong and supportive family unit.
