Photography is an evocative practice connecting us to the experience and history of our world, involving learners in visual semiotic production and ICT networking possibilities as a strategic device to shape individual empowerment and competences development, enabling to act successfully in the world, deal with transformation and change, and respond to long-term challenges (D.S.R. & L.H. Salgnic (eds.) 2003). In this perspective, photography but also ART as a stimulus, becomes a relevant value on health interventions, as it becomes a “communication device” and a “knowledge device”. Thus, promoting wellbeing per se. Furthermore, photography has become a widespread tool which allows performing pedagogic paths and pursuing pedagogic results easily. Photography is accessible (through small digicameras, mobile phones) and therefore it guarantees the spontaneity of one’s own artistic vision. E.T.R.A project uses photography not only as a tool to acquire key competences as well as technical competences but also and above all to promote a “re-activation” of the individual and collective consciousness that allows marginalized persons to use their own imagination and creative thought.
