Body Mapping

1387945380bodymapIn a photography class one day, we decided to try another InsightShare Participatory Video exercise using photography.

 

Students were asked to draw their body outline and fill it in with their thoughts, feelings and experiences. In their head/mind they were to write their dreams, their fear in the stomach areas, their achievements in their hands and their roots and origins in the feet. It was a really small class that day with only three girls who were coincidentally sisters.

 

We called the excercise ‘Somos mujeres, somos hermanas/ we are women, we are sisters.’ Afterwards we gave them some props and left them to take portraits of each other, reflecting these new themes and thoughts that they’d shared.

 

 

Here are another couple images that came from the exercise & some other photos by these beautifully creative girls:
