The article presents and analyses 20 photographs taken by ten young people in Paamiut, Greenland. The photographs were taken as a part of workshop facilitated by photographer Tina Enghoff and journalist Anette Molbech and later published as part of a book. The workshop was one of the many activities in the community mobilization program Paamiut Asasara. The photos, their titles and narrative texts are analyzed, using the method of a close reading with a clear focus on the photos themselves, combined with a contextual analysis of the photos. Transparency into the step-by-step analysis is used to secure plausibility of the results. The study shows that the photographs present the following themes: (1) searching for strength; (2) moving forward (to be on the move); (3) the will to choose and to make changes; (4) a longing for close relationship; and (5) valuing love, i.e. to love and to be loved. These themes are understood in the context of traditional Inuit story-telling and in the present situation of the young people in Paamiut as part of the Paamiut Asasara program.

Paamiut Youth Voice (PYV) is a Participatory Action Research (PAR) project, exploring youth perceptions, experiences, and the promotion of well-being in Paamiut, Greenland. Active youth participation remained a key challenge in the development of the local community through the locally initiated community mobilisation programme Paamiut Asasara. The challenges of youth participation in PYV are investigated in order to explore the implications of youth participation in PAR projects. The discussion of challenges is based on a methodological account of experiences from the research process clarifying how youth participation in the PYV project took place. Results are presented, concerning the young people’s understandings and experiences of engagement and participation.
