dc.description.abstractWhile developing a project on community health care in rural China in the late 1990s. researchers Mary A. Burris and Caroline Wang understood the need to seek alternative methods to curb the social and psychological pressures women faced. Based on the idiom "A picture is worth a thousand words" they equipped individuals with cameras so people could represent and voice their lives and that of the community by taking pictures. The participatory method, known as Photovoice, consists of three main phases (Fig. 2-2.1 ): (1) identify the community issues, target some under the form of questions and ask the participants to record their answers with pictures and short captions: (2) organise a critical group discussion during which pictures are explained. discussed. and grouped by themes by the participants: (3) organise a photo exhibition with all stakeholders to disseminate results. The exhibition offers a platform for participants to engage with e.g. policy makers by displaying photographic evidence and symbolic representations of the world seen through the eyes of the people of little influence. This is one of the major goals of Photovoice, along with empowering participants to record community needs and strengths. as well as promoting critical discussions (Wang and Burris. 1997).en_US
