ZoomOut: Participatory Photography
“We have become passive spectators and consumers of visual imagery that we did not create and that we do not necessarily understand,” writes ImaginAction artist Uri Noy Meir.
“We must become creators of the imagery that tells our own story, the untold story. To reengage ourselves as creators, we need to return to the playful, imaginative creative approach of children.”
The ZoomOut workshop combines techniques developed by Augusto Boal in Theatre of the Oppressed, including Image and Forum theatre, with participatory photography and community-based documentary film making.
In ZoomOut, games and exercises lead us to create our own unique imagery with the body and with the camera while working collaboratively. Participants share stories and develop theatrical scenes, photographic storyboards, and short video-art that investigate situations of oppression and create alternative imagery.
