THE MEANING OF FOOD AND WORK IN PERU THROUGH COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SIGHT
This project seeks to analyse how food and jobs are perceived within the community.
NatGeo explorer Rebecca Wolff came to Mil to do her research and had the support of Francesco D Angelo anthropologist and who was part of our team in Cusco. Its objective was to check if there is any relationship between food and what is understood as work. He also wanted to see the way in which gender roles were established around eating practices and those related to work.
The project applied a participatory methodology called Photovoice. It is a collaborative research method where individuals/informants identify and discuss community needs through photography. They gave 6 cameras to community members to photograph everything they considered food and work. These images were then addressed based on semi-structured interviews previously designed among the researchers to analyse their point of view.
