Abstract
  • This Photovoice study took place at an urban community garden over the course of a 10-week youth summer program. After a series of trainings about photography and media, teenage photographers were asked to document their experiences with food, generate a creative project with their images, and host an interactive exhibit for friends and family. The youth chose to speak back to food media by appropriating and flipping popular food media slogans to promote local food, defy stereotypes, and explore their identities as gardeners, multifaceted teenagers, and producers, not just consumers, of media.
