Abstrakti

This chapter introduces an experimental participatory photography project conducted in Kathmandu, Nepal with female activists of two partner organisations working with women’s rights issues. The photography workshops were organised in May-July 2014, followed by reflective group discussions. The process is analysed through the perspective of decolonial feminist solidarity. The chapter demonstrates that while participatory photography can advance more horizontal and intimate engagement between the researcher and participants, as well as enable important dialogue amongst the research participants, it is always a highly context-specific method and its utility for decolonising participatory research in any deeper sense is restricted by many factors. This further accentuates the importance of researchers self-critically reflecting on their positionalities and privileges and being alert to the risk of producing a romanticised view of participatory photography, as unequal power relations cannot ever be fully erased in research, no matter how collaborative it is.
