Images and text are powerful mediums for examining the multi-dimensional aspects of children’s lives and they provide opportunities for understanding the experiences of others. Voices of Children is an international research project that draws on photographic images and written responses contributed by children from many different countries. This international research project was established in 2004 by researchers at the University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia. The project explores the lives of children and young people in a number of different countries through the images they produce, using disposable cameras, as well as written responses to questions about themselves, their families and their worlds.
