Bringing Out the Best in You through Photography
PhotoVoice is a qualitative research method that puts cameras in the hands of its participants. Each week, participants are given a question that they are expected to answer through their photography. Upon their return each week, students are asked to reflect upon their photography and their thoughts related to the questions, in a focus group setting. Quotes are then derived from these reflection groups to go along with the photography. This not only gives young people an opportunity for non-traditional drug education, but also a chance to share their voice in issues where they are not often heard.
This project was conducted with 4 Rockland High School students from January to February of 2016.
