What is PhotoVoice?

It is a methodology deployed around the world to create a world in which no one is denied the opportunity to speak out and be heard.

What is the origin of the methodology?

Photovoice was originally developed in China in 1992 by Caroline C. Wang of the University of Michigan and Mary Ann Burris, Program Officer for Women’s Health at the Ford Foundation. Photovoice operates within a field commonly referred to as ‘participatory photography’ - a methodology with roots in the community photography scene.

Has Photovoice been used in China?

Photovoice was created in China in 1992 as a way to enable rural women of Yunnan Province, China, to influence the policies and programs that affected them. Since then, there have been dozens of Photovoice projects employing the Photovoice methodology in China and thousands of other projects around the world.
