The photovoice method is a taylor-made approach embracing the context of a research/Intervention articulated with the needs of participants. It builds on the power and potential of photography as a tool that enables and encourages participants to be creative, reflective on the topic and imagine alternative futures.
With photovoice, we encourage independence towards the participants. They can freely choose what they would like to share about themselves and their surroundings in a visual manner. By giving the people a camera, they are able to document and reveal what they appreciate and what they would like to share. The pictures can amplify stories, providing a more complex view on a topic enabling new actions.
Based on this shared knowledge, we can co-create an opportunity for social change.
