A collection of photographs from five PhotoVoice projects are being exhibited with The Photographic Angle.
PhotoVoice and The Photographic Angle’s exhibition of photographs from five of our projects are being exhibited at various venues across the UK. Hosted by The Photographic Angle (TPA) in otherwise abandoned spaces, these exhibitions bring images to light and open up conversations and debate on the experiences of PhotoVoice’s project participants.
The exhibition showcases the following projects:
See it our way (2010 – 2011)
Through the eyes of young people affected by human trafficking we gain an insight into their views on local issues. Youth from the ‘See it our way’ project live in communities that are a source, transit and destination for human trafficking across the Middle East and Eastern Europe. These photographs formed part of a campaign aiming to reduce child exploitation.
How we see it (2010)
PhotoVoice partnered with Fairbridge to give young people living in london a platform to express themselves. This collection of photographs explores topics such as disenfranchisement, marginalisation and exclusion.
Lookout London (2011)
PhotoVoice, in partnership with the supported housing charity Chapter 1, worked with young people living in assisted housing in Homerton to challenge the damaging stereotypes associated with youth. Through photography they explore the issues of gang culture and knife crime.
Sights Unseen (2009 – 2010)
To overcome social barriers and to ensure visually impaired people have their stories told, PhotoVoice worked in partnership with Sight of Emotion (Mexico), the Organisation of Blind Africans and Caribbeans (OBAC, London) and One-Plus-One (China) to create beautiful sensory photographs.
UR in the Picture (2008 – 2009)
PhotoVoice, in partnership with United Response ran workshops for adults with mental health needs. Their photographs express the things that are important to them and their loved ones. They explore their lives and their experiences through a diverse range of subjects.
