Photovoice Project

Creativity as an instrument of self-discovery.

Taking a cue from the Photovoice methodology developed in the 1990s by Caroline C.Wang and Mary Ann Burris, Photovoice Project creates both individual and group courses aimed at anyone who wants to re-elaborate their personal story through photography.

Photovoice Project combines photography and psychology to help you search for and express your true Self, by supporting the development of each individual’s self-esteem and sense of well-being.

Initially, Photovoice methodology was founded to identify and reflect on the strengths and problems of one's own community. Today, our photographic laboratories, online workshops and seminars have evolved into powerful tools of awareness and change, and have different fields of application and purpose:

  • Personal growth courses.
  • Supervision tools for work groups.
  • Team building for companies.
  • Social action research.
  • Experiential activities in the social health sector.

Our proposals begin with an analysis of the context and needs of the individuals and are then adapted according to the desired goals in order to make them most effective.

What does Photovoice Project do?

The camera is your megaphone and images become your voice.

Starting from the Photovoice methodology, we have chosen photography as a way of expressing and processing the experience. Participants in our workshops become narrators of their own story, overcoming barriers related to verbal communication thanks to the immediacy of the images.

Creating these photographs, each participant has the opportunity to understand reality and acquire awareness, both inside and outside of himself/herself, according to personal perspective. Group comparison then offers the possibility to reflect on personal experiences and points of view, integrating them with those of others.

The camera becomes not only a way to observe oneself on an intra-psychic level, but also an empowerment tool, which supports self-realization and personal growth, opening up paths for development.
