Photovoice is a method used to visually represent a concept or idea. When you use the method of photovoice to explain a phenomena, idea, or circumstance, you think and communicate more deeply through symbols and representation. In turn, your audience may start to see what you describe in new ways.
Please review the document titled “Examples of Photovoice” to get a sense of how photos can be used to symbolize, represent or exemplify an abstract concept. The photo that you upload can be a photograph that you take yourself or an image you found from another source (Be sure to provide an appropriate reference for any photo that is not your own). Any photo that you upload must not be of a person or a group of people. Their faces cannot be identifiable because this would violate their privacy. Again, take a look of some of the examples in the document to get ideas.
