Photovoice (PV) is a qualitative methodology grounded in community-based participatory research and Participatory Action Research. Photovoice asks participants to share photographs of their lived experiences to communicate their lives and the meaning of their concerns. Since its inception in the early 1990s, PV has been used in various settings worldwide to draw attention to the needs of participating communities. Though recognized as a robust research methodology because it can be easily adapted for different uses, PV offers a unique alternative for gathering feedback in a community from stakeholders. This paper provides an overview of PV, describes how the method is conducted and suggests how it can elicit information from community members to answer different questions.
