These prints were taken by our participants from various workshops and projects.

They were selected to convey the breadth of our subject matter, the quality of the images taken, and something of the lives, experiences and stories expressed by marginalised individuals around the world.

 

Photovoice’s vision is for a world in which no one is denied the opportunity to speak out and be listened to. All of the proceeds from these images support the on-going, tireless work of PhotoVoice.

 

Please help us to empower people to tell their own stories; too many are going unheard.
