We propose a series of three hands-on workshops and a closing roundtable discussion focused on methodologies of photoethnography and the current state of the genre. Each 2-hour workshop will feature three practitioners discussing their experience and will involve some participation from those attending the workshop. The roundtable will be structured as an informal and participatory conversation between the 9 workshop practitioners and the audience, talking about the current state of photoethnography.
In this second workshop, participants will discuss the opportunities and challenges around photovoice and other participatory photographic methodologies. We will work with workshop attendees to experiment with different approaches to participatory photography. We will also look to partner with a local San José organization or school to conduct a participatory photography project as an extension of this workshop.
