Photography: A Tool for Social Change

BY JANNETH GIL
@ VOL 39 ON APR 27, 2019

Janneth Gil is a Colombian-born, New Zealander. She started drawing and painting at a young age however, the social instability, poverty and cultural beliefs of her birth country led her to follow an Electrical Engineering and Project Management career. She now has the opportunity to completely dedicate her life to what she is most passionate about, art through the eye of a lens. She is currently studying a Master of Fine Arts, majoring in Photography at the University of Canterbury.

She truly believes in helping others with her skills and uses her photography as a tool for social change to empower, teach, or simply help people to better understand others. Through her photography, Janneth depicts people and their interactions with others and their environment, exploring cultures, societal norms and the conflict between perceptions, emotions and reality.
Her own social photography-based projects include Our Voices www.ourvoices.co.nz depicting the life stories of a group of people living with disability in Ōtautahi/Christchurch, and Void. Void is largely drawn from Janneth’s autobiographical narratives exploring themes and ideas about identity construction and transculturalism in the context of immigration. More of her work can be found at www.jannethgil.com.

In this PechaKucha Janneth shares how she has used photography as a tool for social change. She encourages exchanging our hidden stories with the hope we would recognise similarities with the “other” therefore, contributing to create a more accepting, tolerant and inclusive society despite our differences.
