We used photography to tell people about what is important in our lives.
We worked as co-researchers with Ann Fudge Schormans.
Co-researchers are labelled people who work with researchers from universities.
We also worked with a photographer.
We used 3 different type of photography.
We used photo-voice.
Photo-voice means we took photographs of what is important in our lives and then together we interpreted them.
We used photo-documentary.
Photo-documentary means that we took photographs that documented events in our day to day lives.
We used photo-theatre.
Photo-theatre means we took photographs about a topic and then we re-made the images.
We took photographs that show people our experiences and opinions.
We want to show people how we see barriers to parenting.
We want to show how we view being poor and being unemployed.
We want to show what we think about relationships and sexuality.
We want to use photography to show belonging.
We acted out and photographed our experiences as labelled people.
We tell stories about adoption and about how we are not allowed to be parents.
We show how having a disability means you have no money.
Not having money means you can’t afford to have a baby.
