Placing Photovoice under Erasure: A Critical and Complicit Engagement with What It Theoretically Is (Not)
Higgins, Marc
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v29 n5 p670-685 2016
While there have been multiple breaks, shifts and developments within the theories that shape photovoice (i.e. praxis and feminist standpoint theory), they are rarely accounted for in the ways in which photovoice is (re)constituted. In this paper, I ask and engage with the questions: "what might it mean to reconceptualise photovoice through a substitution of these similar yet different iterations of these theories?" "What is produceable in turn?" By placing these (mis)readings of theory in conversation with concepts key to photovoice, empowerment and voice, I provide not what photovoice should be but rather possible possibilities for what it could be.
