Exploring the Self Through Photography examines how professionals working with groups can use photography to promote positive change. From how to set up and run a photography group to chapters covering relationship-building, self-esteem and more, this provides activities and themes perfect for photography and psychology collections alike.
This is an immensely practical book which uses photography in a variety of ways, from making photographic images, or using postcards, images from magazines and newspapers...It is a valuable resource for people using a creative activity as a tool for exploring the processes of self-development and reflection to gain greater insight into personal growth and the possibility of making change...Exploring the self through photography invites the reader to embark on a journey of visual self-discovery, and to encourage others ot use photography to see the world (and themselves) in a different light.
