Toward a New Conceptualization of Photovoice: Blending the Photographic as Method and Self-Reflection
Latz, Amanda O.
Journal of Visual Literacy, v31 n2 p49-70 2012
One finding and concomitant new conceptualization of the photovoice methodology derived from a research study conducted with community college students are put forward in this paper. One of the aims of the photovoice methodology is to develop a more critical consciousness within participants. I, however, did not note an increase of critical consciousness among the participants of this study. The new conceptualization of the photovoice methodology described in this paper suggests that the methodology be bifurcated: one branch focused on critical consciousness building among participants and one branch focused on reflective consciousness building.
