PhotoVoice

February 2 - 26, 2016

PhotoVoice is a participatory action approach that empowers students to use their cameras to document access and barriers, to reflect on the meaning found in the photos, and to engage in critical dialogue with others to ignite the spark of social change.

 

The Office of Disability Services at Winthrop University provides access to bright college students who happen to have disabilities. 2015 marked the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To celebrate, we asked Winthrop students to participate in a PhotoVoice project as a way to raise awareness of the issues they face each day.  We are using photographs to educate the public, as well as those who have the political power to make change on our campus and in our communities. If a picture is worth a thousand words, these photographs provide visual evidence to help identify and address issues of accessibility. We are asked students to consider their barriers, take a photo, and submit to us along with where and when the photo was taken and a short summary the obstacle represented.  As an example, in a prior exhibit, a student with severe allergies took a photo of her epi pen sitting inside her running shoes.  Her summary explained how she can’t just throw on her shoes and go. She has to be very careful of what she comes in contact with and she must read all food labels before she can grab a snack or lunch. One misstep could lead to anaphylactic shock and possibly death.

Kathleen Burke

September 2 - 29, 2016

Inspired by the landscape, Kathleen Burke is drawn to quietly dramatic places; places such as the sea or rapidly vanishing rural places that, though shaped by generations of people, seem self-contained or isolated nonetheless. She is fascinated by the endlessly changing drama of the skies above these places. Transitions is a recognition of the constant state of change that we all share.

An Adjunct Professor of Fine Arts at Winthrop University and at the University of South Carolina – Upstate, Kathleen Burke began painting in her early teens. She received a BFA in Painting from Seton Hill University in 1991, and an MFA from Winthrop University in 2007.
