Visual voices – Changes in natural resources in Aceh revealed through the lens of local people
A picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures can tell untold stories, particularly those of local community members. The PhotoVoice methodology gives them a voice. Through the lens of a camera, people get the opportunity to reveal their important, yet undiscovered stories. For themselves and for the world to see.
The booklet ‘Visual Voices’ shows the results of nine months of gathering pictures in 3 watersheds in the Northern Aceh province of Indonesia. It gains insight into the environment and the changes in natural resources through the eyes of a selected group of Aceh people. When you look at this small selection out of over 300 incredibly beautiful pictures, you get the opportunity to listen to their voices and appreciate their perspectives. Their wish and hope is to inspire you to act - in whatever way you can - to help protect their landscape!
