Village Works: Photographs by Women in China's Yunnan Province

From the Site: "Village Works: Photographs by Women in China's Yunnan Province is the first public exhibition outside Yunnan Province, China of pictures created in 1992-93 during a Women's Reproductive Health and Development Program, supported by The Ford Foundation. In an experimental "photovoice" approach to assessing the needs and resources of mountain villages in southwest China, 62 women were given auto-focus, auto-rewind cameras and asked to record one year of their daily life, work and health conditions....You can enrich this project by posting your responses and by writing messages that will be forwarded to the women photographers in Yunnan."
