Photo Voice is an organisation from London that "encourages the use of documentary photography by enabling those that have traditionally been the subject of such work to become its creator - to have control over how they are perceived by the rest of the world, while simultaneously learning a new skill which can enhance their lives."
Together, the PC/FF and Photo Voice, created a half-year project for 7 Palestinian and 7 Israeli boys and girls, all from the PC/FF youth group. For the next few months they'll learn how to operate the camera, take pictures, express themselves and tell each other about their own daily lives, personality and dreams, through the use of the camera.
We would like to thank: Limor Melzer- Project Manager and Israeli coordinator, Aysha Ashur- Palestinian coordinator, Keren- The Israeli Facilitator from Tel-Aviv, Sami-the Palestinian Facilitator from Ramallha, Daniela Kitaein- Group Advisor, Saeed Taji Farouky- Photo Voice representative, Anna Blackman-Photo Voice co- Manager who worked for months to make it happen and Ilona Suschitzky - an artist who lost her Israeli nephew. Ilona suggested the project to both organisations and made the first connection. We also thank all the people who helped on the way and worked hard to make it happen.
