A PHOTOGRAPHY AND PAIN WORKSHOP FOR PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC PAIN
This workshop is aimed specifically at people experiencing chronic pain. Photography has been used as a healing tool for many decades and the benefits of “therapeutic photography” are well supported in the literature. This workshop helps individuals to understand their pain, why it can persist, and how to use the creative elements of a camera to express themselves through the medium of photography. The individuals are encouraged to interpret photographs, take photographs with the understanding of how to use light, composition, aperture and speed, and how to create a photographic portfolio of their own “journey” to assist them in managing their chronic pain. In doing so, the participants are encouraged to integrate socially and experience the regenerating influences of environmental interaction.
The creative expression and meaning behind photography can be profoundly healing and rewarding for patients who have “lost their sense of life” as a result of their chronic pain condition. If you have chronic pain and feel that this workshop would benefit you, and you would like to consider starting photography as a hobby with healing properties.
