This is a therapeutic photography project for women who live with chronic pain or chronic illness. Photography can be incredibly healing for those of us with chronic pain/illness. This course takes place online in a CLOSED Facebook group. I post photo prompts, related to pain/illness, with an explanation of how to approach each topic. This project has been hosted annually for four years. Past photo prompts have included: acceptance of pain/illness, gratitude, goals. You and the other participants will then take and post a photo along with a few sentences about your experience related to the topic. You are also encouraged to reflect on other participant’s photos and dialogue with others about your shared experience of living with pain/illness. The personal nature of the group quickly creates a supportive environment to share and many lasting friendships are often created. Participate as much or as little as you would like.
The project is for women only. No photography experience necessary. You only need the camera on your phone or another camera that you can upload photos to Facebook with.
